New slow cooker purchased! Here is my contribution to #scsunday. I made this last night and let it cook overnight. The smell in the house was amazing, although my wife felt we had just woken in a curry house!!’


  • 600g Diced lamb
  • 2tsp oil and a little butter
  • 2 medium onions
  • 5 cloves Garlic chopped

  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 5 tsp garam masala
  • 1 handful coriander chopped
  • 2 handfuls of yellow lentils
  • 3 cups of boiled water

  5. In the slow cooker add the lentils, meat and then the curry mixture.
  6. Add the boiled water
