500g/1lb 2oz new potatoes, halved

800g/1lb 12oz boned lamb shoulder or beef shin,

cut into matchbox-size pieces

1 tbsp low FODMAP curry spices

small bunch fresh coriander, stalks finely chopped

5cm/2in piece fresh root ginger, finely grated

200ml/7fl oz lactose free cream

200ml/7fl oz low FODMAP beef stock

1 tsp light muscovado sugar

1 lime, zest and juice

1 tbsp fish sauce, plus extra to taste

6 freeze-dried kaffir lime leaves (optional)


Place the potatoes in the slow cooker. Heat a large non-stick frying pan and brown the meat in batches until golden brown, then transferring to the slow cooker.

There’s no need to add any oil to the pan as the meat is fatty enough.

Add the low FODMAP curry spices, coriander stalks and ginger to the frying pan, then fry for a few minutes until fragrant.

Tip in the beef stock, lactose free cream and bring to the boil. Season with the sugar, lime zest and fish sauce, add the lime leaves if using, then pour the sauce over the meat and potatoes.

Cover with the lid and cook on low for 8 hours until very tender.

Spoon off any excess fat from the top of the curry, add the juice from half the zested lime and add more fish sauce if needed.

The curry should have a balance of sour, salty, hot and sweet without one flavour dominating.

Scatter with the coriander leaves, then serve with steamed fragrant rice and the remaining lime in wedges, for squeezing.
