When I’m making this curry at home, the whole house smells delicious. Using lamb shanks makes it look so pretty and gives it dinner party status.


  • 3 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 2.5cm piece of ginger, grated
  • 2


Preheat the oven to 160°C/320°F/Gas Mark 3.

Combine the chilli flakes, ginger, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, cardamom and salt with the onion, garlic, lemongrass, coriander and 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a blender and blend as finely as possible.
