Lamb Curry with Coconut Milk

As with most casserole-style dishes, this curry will be even tastier the next day when reheated. It will also freeze very well, so make the curry in large quantities (the cooking time will still be the same) and freeze in meal-sized portions for those evenings when you can’t be bothered to cook.
