Lamb chilli curry recipe is an easy Indian curry that will have your taste buds simply tingling in delight as they experience first, the tender marinated lamb then second, the rich chilli sauce.
Warning. This lamb chilli curry recipe is quite hot!
But it is also an absolutely delicious lamb curry.
You can reduce the quantities of the chilli ingredients if required, and it will still be really tasty!
First let me mention my father in law again. Whom I previously mentioned in my Chicken Vindaloo recipe.
He just loves his curries.
So this recipe was put together with him in mind, when he requested something hot and spicy with lamb and Chilli in!
