1 customer review


Serves up to 6 people

So after a short break off the menu as the UK farming industry settled down we are pleased to announce that the much beloved Smokey leg of lamb that so many of you enjoyed over lockdown is now back on the menu!

The huge 2.5/3kg leg that for many became a welcomed alternative to the Sunday roast or an amazing centre piece for a family dinner is back for a limited period throughout August. Every week it will arrive with a selection of traditional vegetarian curries, our amazing aromatic pilau and 8 large fluffy naan breads.

As with all of our generously portioned boxes its not just for that one sitting and it was lovely to see all the amazing creations you all made with the leftovers, from spiced lamb sandwiches, Indian wraps even to a spiced shepherds pie and so many soups! We can’t wait to see how creative you all get with your boxes and we will choose the best one weekly to receive a complimentary box which you can have for yourself or gift to a friend or family.

    We had this meal yesterday and invited the in-laws round as the leg was 5.5lbs in old money so a bit more than me and the missus could shift. There was plenty of meat for us all and even some left over for inclusion in a Red Hyderabad curry tonight.
    Yes we like curry!!
    We found cooking the leg of lamb to be as straightforward as the included instructions described. We like our meat medium well done to be honest and so we cooked it a bit longer than required, we accept that many folk prefer lamb pink, so each to their own l guess.
    One tip, try and avoid cooking the leg in anything white as the juices and coatings can bake on and although l soaked it overnight it still took some elbow grease to shift it.
    The accompanying dishes were a great match for the lamb. Some easily recognised exotic veg in there, too exotic for the sister in law who had to ask… okra l think it was.
    The weight of spice as with all the dishes we have had so far was medium l think l would describe it as….. as one who has raised the bar to Phal in the past… but we learn do we not!
    We love the naan breads they are not heavy and stodgy but thinner and substantial.
    All in all my wife says it took all the hassle of preparing the meal and what more can you really say.
    Well done to Aktar and the team, this is definitely something we would consider having again once we have polished off the tandoori barbecue goodies we still have in the freezer.
    Best regards
    Philip and Anne.
