Thermomix Lamb Rogan Josh

Sharing is caring!

Skinnymixers have been asking me to do a Lamb Rogan Josh recipe for 2 years now… I haven’t been game enough to try it until now!

Another common request is for great recipes using lamb shanks in the Thermomix. This is a beautiful, authentic recipe is rich and flavoursome – just like the perfect Rogan Josh.

I have included instructions on how to cook it using lamb steak for a quicker version, as well as shanks – personally we prefer it with lamb steak.

Enjoy!

  1. I made this for the first time tonight. Wow! It’s delicious and my young kids loved it too. We made naan bread and rice to go with it. I didn’t have any Greek yoghurt but I used coconut cream instead and it was magnificent. Definitely going to make this over and over again!

  2. Cooked this for mum’s birthday dinner . Marinated sliced leg of lamb overnight then chucked them all into a slow cooker for 6 hours while I got on with the rest. So disappointed there weren’t any leftovers – everyone LOVED it!!

  3. Wanting to try in pressure cooker – has anybody had success with this? New to pressure cooking, so not sure about additional water content.. thanks for any advice!

    1. I do tmx recipes in my pc all the time. Make the curry paste in the tmx, marinade overnight. Follow instructions for curry in slow cooker but adjust time to about 15 minutes. Depending on what your meat is like. Follow your instinct. Stir through the yoghurt when the city has cooled somewhat.. stop soon and you’ll curdle it… x

  4. This was amazing. A new family favourite. I made the lamb rump version and cooked it for 5 mins extra and the meat was beautifully tender. This will be on regular rotation.

  5. I’m doing the slow cooker version. For the curry can i mix all the curry ingredients with the tin of crushed tomatoes so all i have to do is add it in the slow cooker tomorrow or should i add them all separately.. i have crushed tomatoes instead of diced? Is this okay?

  6. Slow cooked a leg of lamb instead of the lamb shanks.
    Absolutely delicious. The anticipation was tremendous because we could smell it all day.
    It did not disappoint.
    This will be a regular meal in our house.
    Thank you so much

    1. Mine is all marinated ready to go in the slow cooker for tomorrow. Getting excited seeing all these positive comments.

  7. Delicious! I took chilli seeds out- will leave them in next time! Made it with chunks of lamb shoulder and slow cooked in the oven πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

  8. My young kids don’t like spicy foods – for those that have made this – would you omit the chilli completely
    or just use half the amount? Thanks!

  9. Made this last night using lean lamb steak. As per Nik’s advice I checked at 15mins and the meat was perfect. I also used low fat greek yoghurt as I already had it and it did go a little watery but otherwise was still a really tasty dish!

  10. Amazing flavours for someone that never used to eat anything very spicy. It was just perfect, not too spivey at all, or I’m getting used to it. I did the diced Lamb but couldn’t get lamb rump so I bought a half leg of lamb. It worked well.

  11. Just perfect! I was worried that this would be too spicy but it is amazing. I bought all the lamb shanks and lamb steak from my local supermarket (small town, not much stock) and made enough for 7 serves in the slow cooker. I omitted the onion for my allergies and then at the end I provided ramekins of the greek yoghurt and coconut cream for my dairy-free son (he chose not to use it anyway and ate it without). Everyone loved it from the 10 year old to the (cough cough) 40-something. Thank you πŸ™‚

  12. I had chicken to use up, same amount. It was delicious. Added at the same step and for the same time as the lamb. May not have needed as much time but still good

  13. Hello! I’m so excited to try your recipes. I have a quick question: Is the tablespoon measurement 15ml or 20ml? I’d be grateful for anyone’s help with this query. Thank you πŸ™‚

  14. Little confused about the slow cooker version. I have prepped all the curry ingredients to put in the slow cooker with the marinated shanks and I’m worried about the water. Do I need to add any water to my slow cooker with the shanks, marinade and curry ingredients?

    1. I didn’t ‘prep’ the ingredients in the thermie, I just chucked them straight into the slow cooker without the water and yoghurt and it worked perfectly. Didn’t add any water at any step. Hope this helps.

  15. Yummm this was amazing! I used the shanks in the slow cooker and it was to die for! Will try again soon using rump in the cooker. My husband said it was the best rogan josh ever and to replace the butter chicken with this!

  16. Such a flavoursome meal! Absolutely supurb! I followed the recipe to a fine t and it is restaurant quality!

  17. Oh wow, Nik you have done it again, its lip smackin good.. packed full of flavour, I used Lamb shanks and cooked them in the slow cooker, will try in the thermomix next time (very soon) with Lamb steak..

  18. Yum! This is delicious. Used chuck steak and slow cooked in stovetop as hubby doesn’t like lamb. Used 1kg of beef (enough for half to go in the freezer) and there was still plenty of sauce.

    1. I think should cook on reverse. We didn’t and ended up like bolognaise. Flavours were nice but texture was right for a curry.

    1. I would try this option too Bernie as I can’t have dairy. Let me know how it goes if you do try it. πŸ™‚

  19. Hi, I love the looks of the new recipe but I wanted to just check on step 3 for the non shank version , and I see others are thinking the same thing. I might just wait for confirmation before I give it a go. Then again I am so keen to give it a go I might just start the marinating process and fingers crossed there is a reply before I get to the cooking stage.

  20. Using the non-shank version, would the 10 sec/speed 2/MC on shred the lamb? Or is that how it is supposed to be?
