having recently been sent some geeta's curry pastes and mango and chilli chutney, it seemed like the perfect time to try out one of my favourite curries. lamb rogan josh! i followed the recipe on the back of the paste whilst adding in some spinach and chobani yoghurt to finish. i just love spinach in curries! :)
♥ 80g rogan josh paste
♥ 300g extra lean lamb leg steaks, diced
♥ one white onion, chopped
♥ 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
♥ 100g spinach leaves
♥ 50g fresh coriander, chopped
♥ your choice of rice to serve
begin by softening the onions for 5 minutes with a splash of oil on a low heat. then add in the lamb and brown for the further 5 minutes.
stir in the rogan josh paste and stir thoroughly for 2 minutes.
add in the chopped tomatoes followed by the bag of spinach and coriander. if you have a smaller pan, add bit by bit as the spinach wilts. oh and save a bit of coriander for serving!
bring to a slight boil and simmer for ten minutes with the lid on. obviously i had to take the lid off for photographic opportunities :) this smelt lovely and i was really pleased with the paste so far!
serve up on your desired plate ready for stirring in the yoghurt. i'm a massive fan of chobani these days - its 0% fat and so creamy you'd never know! so naturally this was my yoghurt of choice :)
you know what - the spices in the paste were just perfect as it tasted exactly like my favourite rogan josh. i know that sounds silly, but i can be sceptical about pre mixed herbs as i find korma pastes never taste right. what do you think?
i served with a mix of tilda white and brown basmati rice and a dollop of geeta's mango and chilli chutney. despite the "hot" labelling, i found this was a really nice heat which did not overpower the flavour. adding chilli to mango chutney is just genius! and oh my - i just discovered there are some delicious sounding recipes on the geeta's site too - including bengali prawns and saag turkey.
note: i was not paid for this post. i was kindly sent the products to review and loved them!
