In preparation of National Curry Week (5 - 11 October) we've pulled together some of our tastiest dishes to celebrate one of the nation’s favourite cuisines. Whether it’s a mellow Massaman or a taste-bud-tingling Jalfrezi, there really is a curry for everyone.
Curry works with everything, but we’re obviously big fans of beef and lamb curry recipes. We’ve selected a few of our favourites to inspire you, as well as one of our favourite curry accompaniments: lamb keema.
Join us this week over on our social channels Facebook and Instagram and we’ll teach you how to make the perfect lamb curry. From choosing your cut of meat, to making your own homemade spice mixes, we'll have you cooking like a pro in no time.
Beef curry recipes
Tasty, succulent and filling, beef works spectacularly well in a curry. Whether it’s a biryani or a madras, nobody can turn down a well-made beef curry.
Below, we’ve listed some of our favourite beef curry recipes that can be used with fresh ingredients or leftovers.
Lamb curry recipes
Lamb curries, much like beef, are packed full of flavour and volume. Whether you like it spicy or mild, there are a variety of lamb curries to suit everyone.
We’ve even got a Thai-based lamb curry, so dig into that if you fancy something different.
Want a curry in a hurry? This delicious Speedy Beef Curry uses pre-made curry paste and will be ready in as little as 40 minutes - perfect for any day of the week.
Cooking with keema
Here at Simply, we are big fans of Keema. Inspired by South Asian cuisine, Keema is usually made into a curry using lamb mince and peas. The ingredients can vary, but generally consist of lamb mince, garlic, ginger, chilli, onions and garam masala or curry powder. All the ingredients are cooked in one pan, creating a delicious dish bursting with flavour.
What can I make with Keema?
Keema is perfect for those who are short on time and looking for a meal that the whole family will love. We love the versatility that comes with cooking with keema. It can be served as a traditional Indian dish with a side of rice and a naan, or can be combined with classics like a pasta bake for a flavoursome dish with a twist!
Keema is a great base for many different dishes making it ideal for batch cooking. Simply whip up a batch of keema over the weekend and freeze portions ready for weekly meals whenever you need them.
