Lamb Curry with Apples and Sultanas

    2 hours

    A mild fragrant mix of lamb, sultanas and apples produces a wonderful flavour. This curry can be made the day before - in fact, it tastes better if you do.

    I like to serve this curry with bananas drenched in lemon juice; cucumbers (peeled & seeds removed) in yoghurt; mango chutney, toasted coconut and pappadams.

    This was great! I made one change, I left out the raisins and added more curry powder. I served the mixture over rice. Then I had a choice of condo mints to place on top, such as mango chutney, raisins, coconut, banana, bacon, chopped onions, chopped eggs, and peanuts. Delicious and a huge hit with family and guests  -  16 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    GREAT DISH. The lamb is so tender and the whole thing just pops. Maybe add a little spice or salt to try and reduce the sweetness. But Great Dish! Serve on a bed of basmati rice.  -  10 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pretty good, but a little sweeter than I prefer. Next time, I'll try leaving out the brown sugar. I made this a second time with half the brown sugar, which was an improvement. The big improvement, though, was serving this with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Yum!  -  01 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
