Lamb, Pumpkin and Okra Curry

Lamb, Pumpkin and Okra Curry

This is a ridiculously satisfying meal, not only because we used up all 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 fave of mine but the secret is to add it close to the end so it doesn't go all slimy.

Method:

  3. Add the ghee to the pan and fry off the lamb necks with the spice mix.
  4. Decant into a large saucepan ensuring you scrape all of the spice mix into the pan.
  5. Add the chilli, broth and tomatoes and bring to a simmer.
  6. Add in the pumpkin and simmer until tender with a knife (approx. 10 minutes).
  7. In the last 3 minutes, add the okra.
  8. Once ready to serve, add the chopped greens and swirl in the yoghurt for the extra touch of richness.
