Lamb Coconut Curry Recipe

Lamb Coconut Curry 1

What I like about this Lamb Coconut Curry is the flavor of coconut milk and its creamy texture. It might be too spicy for some, but you can easily adjust that.

Lamb Coconut Curry 3

This recipe requires you to cut the lamb in cubes, however I think adding a bone or two will add more flavor to this curry.


You can serve this curry with white rice or Indian bread – Paratha.
