    1. Brown lamb in a pan, then transfer to the slow cooker. Use same pan to fry onion, garlic and spices before adding to slow cooker. Add stock, tomatoes and diced potato. (If you're a rush, you can just put the raw ingredients into the slow cooker, but the taste is better if you brown off the ingredients first.)
    2. Cook 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low.
    3. Serve with rice or nan bread.

    Didn't have any chilli flakes so used chilli powder instead but was still really tasty. I cooked it on low but the potato was a bit mushy so would recommend cooking on high for 4 hours.  -  24 Feb 2014


    Really enjoyed this. Flavour was good even though I did not have time to brown off the meat. I used a whole tin of tomatoes. Next time I may halve the chilli flakes as it was a little too much for me. Will definitely make again.  -  17 Feb 2014


    Delicious, but I do not have a slow cooker, just cooked it in fan oven 160c for2hrs. Doubled the amount of garlic and halved the amount of chillie flakes, and usd fresh tomatoes. Just have to say found the quantity only made a good meal for two.  -  14 Oct 2015
