So as you probably have gathered from reading this blog I am a sucker for everything Low n Slow – Pork Belly, beef – anything that needs time and attention and I’m all over it. But I’ve been kicking around with the traditional for a while and decided to have a look a little further east this time….to be very specific I’m combining near East: Welsh Lamb shanks: and far east: Curry spices.
These are my Low n Slow curried lamb shanks and they are legend…………
WHAT YOU NEED -Serves 2
2 top quality lamb shanks
1 carton of chopped tomatoes
200 mls chicken stock
1 can coconut milk
1 large red onion finely sliced
For the curry paste:
1 small red onion – rough chop
3 cloves garlic
1 tps gara masala
2 tps turmeric powder
2 tps cumin powder
2 tps coriander powder
2 tps yellow mustard seeds
4 cardamom pods
1 tbs tomato paste
3 tps minced ginger
100mls olive oil
1 tps salt flakes
HOW YOU DO IT
STEP1: Kick off by browning the shanks well in a medium frying pan, get a really good deep brown colour then set to one side.
STEP2: In a food processor blitz up all the curry paste ingredients until you are ready to cook.
STEP3: Get a large pot on the heat and fry the sliced red onion until well carmelised and sweet. At this stage add the curry paste and cook out for 1-2 minutes, this will cook the spices and give you an aromatic sauce full of depth.
STEP4: Next add in the chopped tomatoes, stock and coconut milk before dropping in the browned shanks.
STEP5: Bop a tight-fitting lid on the pot and sling in the oven at 150c for 2hrs or until the lamb is falling off the bone.
Serve with a simply basmati rice or garlic flat breads……killer.

Nice one Fitzy!!
[…] is straight up Autumn on a plate, if you do want a little more kick and spice you could follow my Curried Shank recipe and simply swap out the lamb shanks for Ox […]
I’m giving this a try!! Although my favourite cut for a curry is lamb neck – on the bone.
A great cut Fiona and one I usually reserve for my Mums Irish Stew – but it’ll work just as well in this case!
Wot no chilli?
Wot? Well…..yes….yes of course no chilli…but don’t let that stop you Mister Momo…knock your socks off with as much chilli as you want :0)
