Slow Cooker Store Cupboard Lamb Curry (Keema)

In a bid to use up what food we have, I decided to throw a few bits together to see if it worked.   It was delicious, and saving me a trip to the Supermarket - where I inevitably spend a small fortune - was cost effective too.   After all, it is mid January and funds are low!
500g minced lamb (found in the freezer having been reduced)
2 onions, diced
1 can chopped tomatoes (always have them to hand)
2 green chillies, sliced - I kept the seeds in, up to you dependent on taste
3 cardamom pods split or bashed with the blade of a knife
2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp chilli powder - I have hot
2 garlic cloves chopped
2 tsp ginger (cheater from the fridge)
100ml lamb stock
2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric - to be honest not sure it did anything to the flavour or colouring so wld omit next time!
Basically threw it all together and left it for 7 hours.   Added some green beans I found close to their demise and left for another hour.   Was delicious served with Basmati rice :)

  1. Do you reckon you could use mutton in this as well?

  2. if it was minced as Keema refers to minced meat, but the spices and other ingredients would still work with mutton, I have some in the freezer actually, might give it a go in the week - specially since it doesn't look like I'll be getting to Sainsburys any time soon #snow!
    Thanks for taking time to comment :)
