All2Karahi Lamb
Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons of Mama Dor’s Karahi Lamb Spice Blend*
  • 500g lamb shoulder, cubed
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 fresh chillies (optional)


1. Create a paste using the Spice Blend, yoghurt, tomato puree and vinegar. Add the lamb and leave to marinate for at least two hours, covered in the fridge. The vinegar may seem like a strange addition, but it works beautifully with lamb, adding a little tang but also tenderising the lamb.

2. When you’re ready to cook, take the marinated lamb out of the fridge and leave to sit at room temperature for 30mins. This is an important step to ensure the yoghurt doesn’t split when you add to the pan.

3. In a deep frying pan, brown off the onion with chillies (if using) in the olive oil. Once nicely brown, add the lamb mixture with about 100ml of tap water. Give it a good stir, cover and turn to a low heat.

4. Cook for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. The sauce will become thick and the lamb beautifully tender. Serve with warm naan bread or fluffy basmati rice.

* Note: if you do not have the Mama Dor’s Karahi Lamb Spice Blend, you can substitute for a generic curry powder blend. It won’t be as aromatic or authentic but the method described above will give you tender lamb.
