Because curries are our favourite weeknight dinners! 

1 kg lamb shoulder, neck fillet or leg, cut into 2½ cm cubes

2 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil

1 onion, peeled and finely diced

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed

2½ cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

1 bay leaf

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

½ tsp cardamom seeds, crushed

Pinch ground cloves

Pinch cayenne pepper

2 level tbsp flour

200g baby spinach leaves

125g natural yoghurt

Salt and black pepper

Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan, season the lamb and brown for 3-4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add the onion, garlic, ginger and spices to the same saucepan and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle on the flour, stir for 1 minute, then add 250ml water. Stir again, then return the meat to the pan with the bay leaf.

Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 1½ hours.

Remove from the heat and add the spinach. Stir until wilted. Add the yogurt and adjust the seasoning.
