  • ½ cup yoghurt
  • pinch saffron
  • 3 tbsp almonds, coarsely ground
  • 500 g lamb, diced
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 375 g Rogan Josh Curry simmer sauce (bottle)
  • 2 cups spinach leaves, fresh
  • ½ lemon juice


  • Mix yoghurt with saffron and almonds. Add lamb and marinate for 2 hours (or overnight) in the refrigerator.
  • Heat ghee in a large frypan and cook onions until softened, a few minutes.
  • Add lamb and marinade to the pan. Add curry sauce and simmer, covered, for 1½ hour until the lamb is tender. Add water if needed.
  • When the lamb is tender, add spinach and lemon juice. Cook for a further 5 minutes.


Use lesser meat cuts that will become tender with the long cooking time. You could also cook this in the oven if you don't have a slow cooker.
