This Indian Ground Lamb is like an Indian version of chili or beef stew. It’s made with warming spices like ginger, coriander, cumin, turmeric and meat masala. Serrano peppers add a little heat and fresh tomatoes add a touch of sweetness. The potatoes, peas and carrots help make this one hearty meal. Slow cooking the curry helps fuse all of these flavors together, making for one delectable dish.
You can use any slow cooker to make this recipe – but I made mine in my new Wonderbag. It’s a pretty neat device – it’s a slow cooker that doesn’t use any energy. Yep, that’s right – you don’t have to plug it in. It’s perfect for camping, tailgating, potlucks, picnics or you know… if the world ends (kidding). The best part about this slow cooker is that for every purchase, they donate one to a family in need in Africa. I’m super excited because one lucky MHB reader will have the chance to win this unique slow cooker!
Typically when I make a ground meat slow cooker curry or chili (like my habanero chili), I first use a pan to cook the meat and then I add the mixture to my crockpot. Now, I can cook everything in one pot and then place the pot in this pillowy bag. One less dish to clean makes me one happy lady
I plan on using this to keep my food warm during my next dinner party – it’s an instant conversation starter. Now, you should know that this is a fairly large bag – one that will have a dedicated spot on my counter during the winter months. In the summer time, I plan on storing this in the trunk of my car – because it’s also great at keeping things cold. I’ll be able to buy my coconut ice cream and keep it cool while I run errands. Much better than running home to put ice cream in the freezer.
I hope you’ll make this ground lamb curry – in whatever slow cooker you choose. If you are thinking of getting one of these bags – you can read reviews, safety tips and their faq. If you currently have one – I would love to hear what dishes you make in your bag! Update: This is over but check out my giveaway page to see if there’s a current giveaway!
