Lamb, Pumpkin and Okra Curry by Ros Heathcote

To finish off the last of the Halloween pumpkin we decided on a curry dish. This is a ridiculously satisfying meal not only because we used up all the the leftover veg in the fridge, but also because it is so very warming and filling and perfect for a chilly night-in. Okra is an all time fav of mine but the secret is to add it close to the end so it doesn't go all slimy.
