Tandoori Curry Recipe

Tandoori curry recipe a classic Indian curry made the easy way.

It is no surprise to anyone that I love Indian curry and above all I love playing around with different spices to create an awesome home-made curry.

Although I don’t like to brag about this….once in a while I also like to cheat my way through recipes… and with the busy week before the Easter break, my motivation for cooking was at its lowest yet I wasn’t quiet prepared for a take out curry. Admittedly, the stock in my fridge wasn’t inspiring either. Luckily, I had some dorper lamb meat, half a pumpkin and a jar of the Spice Library tandoori paste to make a fuss free curry. And this is how my cheat Tandoori Lamb Curry came to fruition.

Serve this dish with a traditional Indian Bread (recipe here)

    2. Add the whole spice seeds and fry whilst siring until fragrant.
    3. Add shallots, garlic, ginger and green chilies and fry to slightly brown. Stirring continuously allows for the flavors to evolve and bind together.
    4. Then add tomato and meat and salt. Stir well to combine. Saute for 10 -15 minutes.
