Lamb Kofta Curry for Love Lamb Week 1 – 7th Sept

Music by BenSound

As it’s Love Lamb Week I thought I’d share a tasty lamb kofta curry recipe with you. It’s inspired by the BBC Good Food Magazine cover story this month but I’ve put my own twist on it, making it gluten free and using up a glut of tomatoes I have in my greenhouse.

So you’ll need:

500g British Lamb mince

Spice blend of: 2tsp garam masala, 1 tsp of cumin, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp of ground coriander, 1 tsp of chilli powder

1 small onion

2 cloves of garlic

200ml coconut milk or cream ( I used thick cream)

1 tbsp of tomato puree

1 tbsp of chilli sauce

400g chopped tomatoes or a can of ready prepared

300ml of beef stock

Serve with Basmati rice and poppadoms


Mix the mince with half of the spice mix and some fried chopped onion.

Form into firm small balls

Fry the balls on a hob until they have cooked through and gone brown

Remove balls from the pan and make the sauce

Add chopped up garlic, chopped tomatoes, spice blend, chilli sauce, stock and coconut milk.

Allow to reduce down into a thick sauce

Return the mince balls back to the pot and cook for 15 minutes

Serve with Basmati rice and poppadoms
