This healthy and delicious creamy curry is perfect for cooler nights. Made with real food ingredients, this recipe is paleo friendly, gluten free, dairy
free and sugar free.

This is a great recipe to make in your slow cooker or on the stove top. I use organic beef (or lamb) from Sherwood Rd Organics, Brisbane.
As you will see in the recipe I love to serve this curry with cauliflower rice to add a serve of vegetables.

  • Meanwhile, heat extra coconut oil in a large, deep frying pan and add riced cauliflower with 1 tbsp water, stir over medium heat until soft.

    Ummmm so my fussy children had seconds!! I wasn’t sure how this would rate with my 3 kids so I made it with steamed rice instead and they loved it. I made it in the slow cooker and the smell through the house was amazing
