Potato & Lamb Curry

Let me start by saying that I love receiving your comments, emails. and recipe requests – like this Potato & Lamb Curry. Although I try to respond to them as frequently as I can, many do manage to slip through the cracks – and for that, I apologize. However, even though I may not reply to some of your comments, requests or suggestions, you can be assured that I do take each and every one of them into consideration. Well, almost all of them.

Recipe for Lamb & Potato Curry, taken from www.hookedonheat.com. Visit site for detailed recipe.

Of all the legitimate requests I get for recipes, Potato & Lamb Curry has to be one that most frequently occurs. But not just any lamb curry, many of you want to know how to make this rich and creamy restaurant classic a tad bit healthier, simpler and quick enough for a regular weeknight meal. Well, my friends, I hear ya! This may come as a surprise, but I’m not a fan of restaurant lamb curries myself.


I find most restaurant versions too bland and not to mention, oily for my taste. So when a craving of something rich and sinful hits me, I head to my kitchen instead of the Punjabi take-out next door. I created this recipe on one such day when I was desperate to find something to feed my need. I wouldn’t call this a classic Lamb and Potato Curry recipe, but it does come fairly close to feeling rich and creamy, without the added dose of extra fat. On days when I’m feeling extra healthy, I also throw in a bunch of chopped spinach for some added green. Blasphemy yes, delicious – you bet!

    Wow, I never heard of Lamb and Potato Curry. I bet it tastes delicious. The only curry I had and made was chicken and pork with vegetables. I’m not a fan of lamb, maybe I’ll give it a try one day. Great job!

    I have a Futura, which cooks everything faster than the normal prestige or hawkins. Thanks for your inputs, I will have to wait till Chaturthi to try though, we don’t eat meat during Shravan month. :o). WIll post back my comments once I try them.

    Looks yummm! Though I am not a big fan of lamb, looking at your picture and simple recipe makes me want to try it. Can this be done in pressure cooker? I always find it hard to cook for 40 minutes and not burn it. :o). If it can be pressure cooked, how long do you think? 10 mins?
    You just got me hooked on to your blog with mouth watering pics! Cheers!!

    Thanks Sumee! Yes, you can definitely cook this in a pressure cooker – that’s what I do when I’m in a hurry. It really depends on the size and kind of pressure cooker you have. I would suggest cooking it for 20 minutes, turning off the heat and let it simmer until the pressure releases on its own. Do let me know how it turned out for you. Would love to hear your feedback!
