This is the recipe I followed - it's from a Slimming World cook book, so this was a super healthy and low calorie curry =)
Getting all the ingredients ready
Frying up the onions and garlic
Adding the spices
Then the lamb
Followed by the tomatoes, cinnamon stick and bay leaf
And finally chicken stock
It wasn't looking much like any lamb rogan josh I'd had before at this stage - it was runny and much more red than the brown I thought it'd be
The recipe then said to let it simmer - I put a lid on but later realised I shouldn't have and this was the reason it wasn't thickening properly
Cooking some plain boiled rice to accompany the spicy curry
Nearly ready - once I took the lid off it started to thicken properly
And here it easy finished - a mahoosive portion too, but it's slimming world so you don't have to worry about that! It still didn't turn the brown colour I expected from a rogan josh - maybe the cardamom pods add colour?
This is how the recipe book showed the end result - a little different from mine, but I think the food stylist cheated - you can see bits of fresh chilli even though there's none in the recipe!
The forever hungry boy loved this and has asked me to make it again. I'll definitely try another curry, I like korma, bhuna and tikka masala too, so maybe they'll be next =)
