Slowcooker Lamb Rogan Josh and Pilau Rice

Last night we had this with *cheats* pilau rice, was delicious :)

Lamb neck fillet, I used 2, around 6/700g
a little butter
2 onions chopped
2cm ginger - I used the cheat version from the fridge
3 garlic cloves chopped
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbs plain flour
1 tsp dried red chillies
400g can chopped tomatoes
300ml lamb stock
2 cinnamon sticks
4 tbs double cream and a handful of coriander leaf torn, to finish/garnish
Preheat the slow cooker to low before you start.
Melt the butter in a pan, brown the lamb, removed with a slotted spoon and put lamb in the slowcooker.
Put the onions and garlic into the same pan, and fry for a few minutes until onions soften.
Stir in the ginger, spices and chillies and cook for a minute.
Add the flour and mix.
Add the stock and tomatoes, stir until boiling.
Pour the tomato mixture over the lamb, add the cinnamon sticks, put lid on and leave for 7-9 hours.
When ready to serve, stir in the cream and garnish with the coriander leaves.

We served it with *cheats* pilau rice ----> stir a teaspoon per serving into normal rice before cooking!
Its delicious :)
