Number of Servings: 4


    500 - 600 gm Leg of lamb, diced into bite size
    2 large Red Onions finely chopped
    2 inches piece of fresh Ginger
    4 cloves Garlic

    2-3 table spoons Olive oil
    Salt to taste
    3 table spoons plain yoghurt


Chop finely the onions, ginger and garlic and make into a paste in a grinder.
Add olive oil in a sauce pan on heat. When the oil is hot add chopped green chilli and the onion-ginger-garlic paste. Keep on cooking till the paste starts leaving out the oil. Add the chunks of lamb pieces and keep on stirring till the meat is fully browned on high heat. Add chopped tomatoes and keep on cooking till all the tomatoes are amalgamated. You can add a little of water to stop the sauce from sticking to the pan. Now add the turmeric powder, Garam Masala, coriander powder, chilli powder and salt to taste. Keep on cooking till the sauce is all smooth.
Add plain yoghurt mixing it as you add and cover with a lid to simmer for 20 minutes or until the lamb is tender.
You can add more salt or chilli to taste. You can also alter the thickness of the curry sauce by adding more water or cooking for longer to thicken the sauce.

    This recipe is amazing and I'm a devoted follower of Rogan recipe I've tried yet. I halved the chilli ingredients for a less spicy meal so the kids could enjoy it too. - 5/31/10

    Delicious! With the after-holiday sales, lamb was on sale this week and this dish was wonderful! Full of flavor, easy to make, and a delight to the taste buds with a pleasant tingle that remains in the mouth. What a joy to finally enjoy the gamier flavor that lamb tends to have. - 1/12/11

  • We loved this curry, served it with Cauliflower Rice. Next time I will halve the chilli powder as we found this a little too hot for our taste. It tasted so good I still can't believe I made it myself. Thanks for sharing PSDAHRI, I am now looking at your other shared recipes for next weeks dinners. - 7/20/12

  • BTW - No need to purchase garam masala. You can make your own Garam Masala: 1Tbs each: black pepper, coriander, 1 cinnamon stick, cardamom and cloves. These are spices that heat your body. I've also had it with cumin and nutmeg - but I like it simply with the five. Enjoy! - 1/29/11

  • I did it with ground lamb and used currey powder instead of garam masala - but I'm going to do it again properly. Had it on top of steamed cauliflower instead of rice and it was great. Cauliflower is the new rice/pasta in our house! - 1/20/11

  • Regarding "curry" and Indian Cooking: "curry" refers to a formulation of spices used in the recipe. There are many types of curries and therefore anyone looking for the ingedient "curry powder" will not find it here. Garam Masala is a seasoning mixture that can be purchased in Indian grocery. - 7/20/10

  • I made this in the crock pot. Came out great. I think that it wasn't great because I didn't have the chili pepper so it was bland. Also, I didn't cut the lamb into small bites, so the seasoning was not even through out. - 6/11/10

    SANDRAPW67: Curry powder is a combination of spices the author of the recipes uses in place of commercial curry powder (which is a good thing:-)). - 10/11/09

  • Ok, this tastes just like Indian take-away from a restaurant only much less oily. Delicious!!! The lamb gets tender and the sauce is great. I also only used 1 T of oil to no ill effect at all. Just awesome with basmati rice/Indian cauliflower recipe (at Sparkrecipes). - 11/6/08

  • The recipe sounds great! I suppose this is a huge serving to contain 28gms of protein. As such, I would further divide the protion down to 3 more thus, making it sufficient for 12 servings with less than 100 caloies, cut the olive oil to reduce fat also.Love the basics. Thanks very much Pami: - 1/30/08
