Lamb rogan josh and naan breads go together so well they create an amazingly tasty Sunday curry feast. Here I show you how to make lamb rogan josh with home-made naan breads. You’ll never want to buy pre-made curry or naan breads again once you’ve tasted this!
This is my healthier take on a fantastic Sunday curry lamb rogan josh recipe accompanied with home made naan breads.
The difference with my recipe compared to the original recipe is that I’ve removed the ghee and oil, where the main calories come from.
But folks, I assure you that taking away the ghee and oil hasn’t impacted the deep flavour of this Sunday curry at all.
The spices produce a dish full of flavour and one that’s not swimming in additional unnecessary fats that can impact the waistline!
Plus the sauce has a rich and tasty creamy consistency. Without the addition of any cream!
- Low calories cooking spray oil
- 2 large onions
- 2 tsp cumin seeds
- 600 g lean lamb leg steaks cut into cubes
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
- 1 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- 2 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp mild curry powder.
- 1/2 400 g tin tomatoes
- 2 large tomatoes chopped.
- 2 tbsp chopped ground up nuts peanuts /cashews / almonds
- 100 ml No fat yogurt
- 4 tbsp grated coconut cream
- 2 tbsp chopped coriander
- 100 g white bread flour
- 100 g plain flour
- 2 g salt
- 2 g dried yeast
- 100 ml no fat yogurt combined with 100 ml warm water
- Spray the bottom of a heavy based saucepan/casserole dish 10 times with the cooking oil. Turn the heat on high and when the spray oil begins to bubble turn down the heat.
- Add the diced onion and cumin seeds. Keep stirring the onions to prevent any sticking.
- When the onions have become soft, about 4 - 5 minutes, add the cubed lamb
- Brown the cubed lamb and once browned, about 6 - 8 minutes, cover with fresh boiling water.
- Put the lid on and allow to cook for 30 minutes, on a low heat, stirring every now and then.
- After 30 minutes add the salt, ginger and garlic paste, tomato puree, red chilli powder, turmeric and curry powder. Stir well together for a couple of minutes
- Add the tinned tomatoes and chopped tomatoes, cook for 15 minutes again stirring every now and then.
- Add the ground nuts then carefully stir in the 100ml no fat yogurt and add the 4 tbsp. grated coconut cream, Stir and cook uncovered for 15 minutes.
- Check to see if lamb is tender enough. If it is, turn off the heat and put the lid back on to keep it warm until serving. Now make the Naan breads.
- In a medium sized bowl combine the white bread flour and plain flour together.
- Add the salt, the dried yeast and then the no fat yogurt / water mixture.
- Combine in the bowl to a dough consistency.
- Then re-shape into a dough ball, coat in a light dusting of plain flour, place in a clean bowl and cover with clingfilm to rest for one hour.
- Flour a work surface. Roll the sticky dough out into a sausage shape and cut into 6 equal amounts. Roll these into balls.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan / Indian flat pan Tawa / Tava over a medium heat.
- Roll one ball out using a rolling pin into a naan shape. Shake the flour off and put it into the pan. Cook one side until brown blisters appear underside then turn and cook the other side. Lay aside and cover to keep warm.
- Repeat the process with the other 5 balls.
- Re-heat the rogan josh if required and serve with the coriander scattered over.
