Yep that’s right folks. This skinny lamb curry is oozing with flavour and much more figure friendly than an average Indian restaurant curry.

But you know living by the 80:20 rule doesn’t mean loosing out or missing your favourite restaurant meals.

No, it means just making them more healthy, like this skinny lamb curry, and often more naturally flavoursome too.

So, Lady Lynne and I are just back from her birthday break in York. Whilst extremely cold, the weather was kind to us with bright sunshine filled blue sky days which meant we were able to walk all over the historic city taking lots of photographs and covering quite a few miles in the process! 🙂

I’d saved publishing this fantastic skinny lamb curry dish for our return, as I knew I’d be studying for my project management course next week which is pretty intensive. I’ve got some of this in our freezer as one of our evening meals to enjoy next week!

  2. Add the ginger and garlic paste then the diced onions and sauté the onions until soft for about 8 – 10 minutes. Add small amounts of hot water if the mixture begins to stick.
  3. Stir in the chilli powder, garam masala, chopped tomatoes and the tomato puree and cook for about 10 minutes until soft. Add small amounts of hot water if the mixture begins to stick.
  4. Stir in the salt and sugar. Turn off the heat and allow to cool a little.
  5. Puree the mixture to a paste in a blender / food processor.
  6. Add the paste back to the casserole dish, add the stock, cinnamon stick and bay leaves.
  7. Turn the heat back on, bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer, with the lid on for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove the cinnamon stick and the bay leaves.
  9. Add the lamb, put the lid back on and cook for 1.5 hours, stirring the curry every 15 – 20 minutes or so. Top the curry up with hot water if necessary during this period.
  10. Serve the curry garnished with chopped fresh coriander and some basmati wholegrain rice.

  1. I am a sucker for curry (specially with garam masala in it) – and Neil, this looks mouthwatering! Looking forward to seeing those York photos and all the best on your project management course!

      Aw, thanks Shashi! Me too, I’m a sucker for curry, and especially lamb ones for me. Scottish lamb can be a real delicacy if it’s done properly. 🙂

      Catch up with you soon and thanks for all the comments and keeping in touch, I really appreciate that. 😀

  2. I am obsessed with curry- OBSESSED and this looks insane- pinning!

    I love making curry and not eating it until 2-3 days after- the flavour just gets so much better! Btw, your pictures are insane, Neil! what camera/lens do you use? It’s amazing!

    • I’m with Arman! curry after 2-3 days is even better! and yes, your pics rock!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I totally 100% agree with you there Arman! I love curry after it’s spent a few days marinating in the fridge. The flavour definately only gets better!

      Thanks for your comments regarding my pictures. It’s an ongoing daily challenge of mine to practice and to get better at that aspect of my blog. So your comments mean a lot. 🙂

      My current Camera is a Canon EOS 1200D and I have 2 lenses, the kit lens 18mm – 50mm that it came with, and a fixed 50mm lens. I tend to use the 50mm lens more for food photography, and the other one for landscapes and day to day stuff.

      BTW, I always get jealous of how good your photographs are!!!

  3. This sounds and looks delish! I am sugar free, do you think I could leave out the sugar or substitute with stevia? Thanks!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Amber, thanks for your comments, and for stopping by! 🙂

      Sure you can definitely leave out the sugar or substitute with stevia. My preference would be to leave it out. I tested several versions on several people, the overall opinion was they preferred it with the sugar in, so in order to please the majority I went with that.

      Love your site by the way! 😀
