Rogan Josh Lamb Shanks

    8 hours 40 mins

    This lamb shank recipe was initially given to me as a family favourite from a workmate. I've prepared it in a slow cooker and made it as easy as possible to prepare. It has a fantastic flavour and the meat just falls off the bone. I have made this in the oven as well and it tasted just as good.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Oh, yes - I altered alot! I added 1 tsp chopped chillies, 1 tbsp of garam masala, an extra tin of tomatoes, fresh cherry tomatoes & I left out the carrots and mushrooms ( I just couldn't add them to a rogan josh!)  -  26 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
