1 large onion, chopped

1 (14 oz.) can reduced-fat coconut milk
3 tablespoons madras curry powder
2 1/2 pounds lamb shoulder, trimmed of fat and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
Kosher salt
Black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (20 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed


Put onion, carrots, coconut milk, curry powder and 1/4 cup water in slow cooker. Season lamb with salt and pepper on all sides.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1 Tbsp. oil. Add one-third of lamb and cook until browned all over, about 6 minutes. Transfer lamb to slow cooker. Repeat with remaining batches of lamb and 1 Tbsp. oil.

Add 1/2 cup water to skillet, scraping pan with a wooden spoon to incorporate browned bits. Pour liquid into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

In final half hour of cooking, skim fat off stew and discard. Stir in chickpeas and continue to cook. Serve lamb over basmati or other white rice.
