How to cook lamb shank curry

This post on how to cook lamb shank curry.Here is a recipe that I have recently at home. It is called lamb shank curry. It is a very easy recipe to make and it is an all-time favourite in my house. I love making it as it doesn’t require much and creates big flavours. Here is link to my other curry recipes this one is chicken curry noodle.

There are lots of recipes available on the internet nowadays. I have found the recipe in a library many years ago. The library was one of my favourite places to go to when I first came to live in the UK. There is just so much of wealth of information available. I have since lost the original recipe but this recipe adapted from what I found recreates the same recipe It uses a lot of store cupboard ingredients. Dried Indian cooking spices last for years and it is always available on hand as a result.
