This Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry has to be one of my favourite Slimming World curry recipes of all time. It reminds me a lot of our Syn Free Balti Curry, and makes the perfect dinner.
We’ve been working on some curry recipes for a while now, trying to minimise the amount of “faff”, because no one wants to slave over a cooker at the end of a long day.
This Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry is pretty special in the way that you make up the curry paste, then you can use it when ever you like.
Most curry pastes are laden with oil, which is partly there to preserve the paste and extend shelf life.
Obviously, if you’re following the Slimming World or Weight Watchers plans, then oil isn’t your friend.
Our Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry paste doesn’t have much oil in it at all.

The Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry paste will last a few days in the fridge, but make sure to sterilise your jar first!
You can also freeze it in an ice cube tray, and just take them out of the freezer when ever you like!
We like to add as much speed food as possible to our curries – as the more speed foods the better!

What do I need to make this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry?
All you need is a pan, the ingredients below and a food processor to make the paste. Don’t have a food processor? You could also use a blender, or stick blender even.
We used this Kenwood food processor, as it’s pretty damn cheap and as you can see in the video below, gets the job done incredibly well!
Another essential part of this dish (if you’re not a vegetarian that is!) is the Lamb. Lean protein is essential if you’re following Slimming World or Weight Watchers.
Sometimes it’s pretty hard to find and tends to be very expensive!
For the meat, we’d urge you to try Protein Food Shop. The diced lamb is lovely, and lean, and is sourced from British farms, giving the reassurance of meeting all the animal welfare trading standards regulations.
We have a few exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.
How many Syns are in this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry?
As the title suggests, it’s Syn Free! But only if you use lean diced lamb. If your cutting lamb steaks up yourself, make sure that you remove all visible fat.
If you don’t like lamb you could always use chicken, beef, pork – what ever meat you like. You could even leave it out all together.
How hot this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry?
I’d rate this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry as medium, and I’m SUPER sensitive to spice.
If you like your curries mild, then leave out the chilli and just add some chilli powder right at the end according to your taste.
You could also leave it out all together.
What can I have with this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry?
Can I freeze this Syn Free Lamb Rogan Josh Curry?
Yes you can! In fact, this recipe is prefect for batch cooking and freezing. You can freeze the paste, and you can freeze the finished dish.
Just make sure when you reheat, that it’s piping hot.

Fry off the Syn Free Rogan Josh Curry Paste for a few minutes until it begins to stick to the bottom of the pan

Add the marinated lamb along with your chosen veg (we used peppers, cauliflower and butternut squash) and the water.
