A slow cooked lamb curry that is so simple and full of flavour, you'd be remiss to not give it a go. Incredibly flexible, it can be cooked in the slow cooker, on the stove top or even in the oven if you prefer. Each method is fairly hands off, leaving time to be the best cook here. It's beautifully spiced, but just add more chilli flakes if you want it spicier, or fresh chillis on the side.
