This leftover lamb curry recipe is loaded with red peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes, tomato puree, as well as your favorite Indian seasonings like garam masala, cumin, and turmeric.
My earliest memory of a lamb curry is my mother ordering a lamb pasanda when we went to the local Indian restaurant
always looked delicious and I dipped my naan bread in it when I had run out of my buttered chicken
It wasn’t until many years later that I made a slow-cooked lamb curry for Recipe This readers and it’s still one of my favorite curry recipes
But I missed a trick.
The best way to make a lamb curry is not to go buy a bunch of lamb, but make use of your leftover lamb from your last roast dinner and make a large batch of curry lamb for the freezer.
Then you have a lamb curry
that you can reheat whenever you want a curry without the high prices of going to eat at an Indian restaurant or to get an Indian takeaway.
In today’s recipe for leftover curry lamb, we will show you how to make a lamb korma curry with leftover lamb. Plus, you’ll be loaded with plenty of veggies and be cream-free, making for a much healthier, low-calorie lamb curry.

Can you eat leftover lamb?
Yes, you can eat leftover lamb and it is delicious. Leftover lamb, like other meats such as beef, pork, chicken, turkey or duck, can be used in a curry, stroganoff, pasta cakes, soups, stews and all kinds of leftover foods.
Or you can do what Chef Dom loves and that’s making a hot lamb sandwich.
Can cooked lamb be reheated?
Yes, you can reheat the cooked lamb. BUT it’s big, but you can only reheat the same piece of lamb once.
So, if you reheat your lamb in your curry lamb
, you cannot reheat the leftovers from that curry lamb.
The best solution if you are not going to eat all your lamb curry right now or plan to freeze it, is to add the lamb just before freezing, then it has not been reheated.
how long can you keep leftover lamb? Chef Dom says
you can store leftover lamb
for 3 days. On the condition that you keep it in the fridge and do not leave it outside.
We recommend that you make your lamb curry the next day when it is nice and fresh, as it will make a much better curry.
How is tender lamb kept in curry?
The best way to keep tender lamb in a curry is to slowly cook your lamb. Slow-cooked lamb is much more tender, compared to if you cook lamb on the stove or in the oven or air fryer.
It’s also important that there is plenty of liquid in your slow-cooker lamb curry to prevent it from drying out.
Which cut of lamb is best for curry?
The best cut of lamb for a curry is lamb left over from a roast lamb, such as a boneless leg of lamb, a shoulder of lamb or a lamb loin.
Keep in mind that we use leftover lamb loin in this leftover lamb curry recipe.
Is lamb curry good for you?
Our lamb curry is good for you in many ways. There’s no extra oil added, it’s loaded with vegetables, and there’s no added cream.
Which is the complete opposite of what you would expect if you ordered a lamb korma in a restaurant.
BUT if you want to go even healthier, I recommend swapping lamb for goat if you can get it. Because it tastes the same as lamb, but it is much leaner.

Yogurt – I also recommend just before serving, to stir some Greek yogurt. It gives it that amazing creamy curry texture. Although if you want to keep calories low, you can use fat-free yogurt for this.
