A delicious curry where the rich flavours of the infused spices really make this curry stand out and the addition of yoghurt gives it a rich texture. It's well worth that little bit of effort. I always double the recipe so half can be frozen.

  6. Add the lamb and simmer for 40 minutes. Five minutes from the end of cooking, add the remaining 2 teaspoons of Garam Masala and salt. Thicken slightly if necessary. Remove whole spices.
