Classic Lamb chops and Potato Curry is a combination which has always been a staple in our household growing up. There is something about lamb and potatoes that never tires, it’s a match made in food heaven and no matter how often you eat it, it always tastes amazing.

This curry isn’t very intense in heat (spice wise) but if your palate is not used to eating chillies/chilli powder, then leave it out. Finally, if you prefer to have a thicker (bhuna) gravy to your curry than one which is more soupy, add less water at the final cooking stage.
