This is one of www.ElicoFoods.com 'secret recipes' that we prepare and deliver to our special clients on a weekly basis. We have chosen to share this with you to inspire more healthy fresh eating.
Whoever said curries cant be healthy and tasty haven't tried this recipe. Loaded with tender lamb and fresh healthy vegetables, with the added benefits of lentils (you, your partner or kids wont even know they are in there), all combined with a special spice mix that will have you thinking that you are eating at a hidden curry house in the backstreets of India. The best part is you can substitute your meat for lamb mince, or beef or chicken, and just use whatever vegetables you have on hand (but aim to include at least 3 types). Get creative and give this one a go and we are sure it wont be your last.
