Instructions Checklist
  • Place the flour in a plastic bag; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the lamb, and shake until evenly coated with flour. Melt half of the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the lamb in batches until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch; set aside.

  • Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining butter. Stir in the onions, and cook until the onions have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, curry powder, apples, chicken stock, raisins, and browned lamb. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lamb is very tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Stir in the lemon juice and cook 2 minutes before serving.

Pretty good but a little sweeter than I prefer. Next time I'll try leaving out the brown sugar. I made this a second time with half the brown sugar which was an improvement. The big improvement though was serving this with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Yum! Read More

GREAT DISH. The lamb is so tender and the whole thing just pops. Maybe add a little spice or salt to try and reduce the sweetness. But Great Dish! Serve on a bed of basmati rice. Read More

I cooked this for Mother's day and it was VERY tasty and not too sweet. I cooked it again with chicken drumsticks and the meat was falling off the bone it was so juicy. I didn't have any Granny Smith apples but Braeburn worked just as well. Read More

Incredible. This will be a menu staple from now on - the raisins were plump and beautiful and the apple reminded me of the curry my grandma made in Japan. Thank you!!!! Read More

Have made it twice and for a group of friends last night and it was a total hit! I almost burned it....actually did a little but it tasted great. A good one to make for company...one pot meal. I used chicken thighs for could not afford the lamb but it was delicious indeed. Outside of changing to chicken I kept to the recipe. We love Indian food and go constantly to a wonderful place. I actually found this recipe on their site and when I hit the picture it took me to this site...which is my favorite and to this recipe. Ate there a few days ago and thanked them for sending me to this site and recipe! My husband loved it!! Read More
