Want A Break From Naija Food? Try Lamb Curry

I abslutely love a good curry! The texture, flavours and versatility make it a winner all day everyday. As a rice-loving people, this will sit so well in your weekly menu plans. This particular curry recipe doesn't pack any heat, but feel free to add 1 or 2 scotch bonnets to liven it up a bit. The beautiful softly scented spices in a coconut sauce make this an easy one for all the family. Plus, its so easy to make!
