Here’s a delicious curry style casserole that will fill the house with the aroma of spices.  A great slow cooked dish for the weekend, get the lamb cooking late afternoon and it will be ready when you are.
When you are trying to lose weight, avoiding processed food such as meal sachets and curry pastes is a great way to avoid additional fats, sugars, salt and preservatives.
Finding a good quality curry powder that you like is a great way to make your own curries at home. Check out Asian supermarkets and specialty delis to find some different varieties.   Lamb curry


  • 600g lamb, cut into 5cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp curry powder (Ayam’s is a good one to try out)
  • 1 small red chilli, finely diced (optional)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2½ cups beef stock
  • 400 ml can coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh coriander, to serve


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C and heat a large frying pan over med/high heat.
  • In a large bowl, season the lamb with salt and pepper, then add 1 tbsp of the oil. Mix well.
  • Brown the lamb in batches, and place into a large ovenproof dish.
  • Reduce the heat for the frying pan to medium and add 1 tbsp olive oil
  • When hot, add the onion, garlic and chilli (if using) and stir fry for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the curry powder and cinnamon, and stir until the onion is coated.
  • Pour in stock slowly, stirring as you go.
  • Add the coconut milk and stir while you bring it to the boil.

Krystle Allan has lost over 20kg on the challenges flash back friday weight loss results - Krystle Allan

Krystle says “The other day I posted my current photo and think I got a little down on myself. Then someone asked about my before photos and wow!! Over 20kg and stacks of cm’s!  What a change! Yes I do have more goals I want to achieve with toning but look how far i have come! Not only that but my confidence has grown so much!

I couldn’t recommend the Healthy Mummy smoothies any higher and wouldn’t have achieved this result without the 28 day weight loss challenge, smoothies, books and of course this group!
Thank you for keeping me on track!”
