Indian Spiced Lamb

Indian Spiced Lamb ~ Simple Food


As you probably Know Garum Masala is a mix of Indian spices usually made up by way of the chef’s preference, in this recipe I will show you my own Garum Masala which has always worked for me by enhancing all of my Indian style curries giving them a wonderful flavour.

Then of course there’s the sauce, roasted red peppers, tomatoes and garlic, it puts that “wow” into the dish.


I made this with leftover roast lamb but you could use any cooked meat.
