Here’s another great recipe idea from Love food hate waste which is perfect for using up leftovers, helping you to reduce waste and hopefully save some money at the same time.


  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 2 red onions, chopped
  • 2 tsp. 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp. Turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed chillies
  • 1 tbsp. medium curry powder
  • 1 tbsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. tomato purée
  • 450g lamb shoulder, diced
  • 200ml (7oz) water
  • 4 tomatoes, quartered
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp. coriander leaf
  • Sea Salt to season
  • Pilau rice to serve


  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan, add the onions and garlic and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the turmeric, crushed chillies, medium curry powder, ground coriander and the tomato purée and cook for a further minute.
  3. Add the diced lamb, water, tomatoes, lemon juice and coriander.
  4. Simmer for 15 minutes, then season to taste and serve with pilau rice.

Also added tinned tomatoes plus a tin of coconut milk which took a little of the heat out and made it a bit like a passanda!
