Lamb Karahi Curry


Lamb Karahi Curry
This is my take on the karahi curry. Karahi is a garlic and ginger infused curry with a thick sauce. It is full of  flavour. Karahi originates from the Indian subcontinent, the name comes from the dish it’s traditionally prepared in, karahi or wok. Here I’ve used one of my normal cooking pots.

You can add more or omit the chillies to your taste. The plain yoghurt neutralises the intense spiciness in the dish. Serve with dhai, naan bread or roti.
