    Aaliyah's&Aaron'sMum's Note:

    This recipe is from the northern part of India. You could use cuts of boneless lamb but I feel the bones add in the extra flavour.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan, and fry the cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and peppercorns till they start to pop (over medium to high heat), should take a minute or so.
    2. 2
      Next add in the garlic-ginger paste and the onions and fry till soft and golden (add a little water if the mixture is sticking to the base).
    3. 3
      Next add in the turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt and fry for another 5-10 mins adding a little water if necessary (bear in mind spices burn easily).
    4. 4
      Add in the beaten yoghurt and stir it in thoroughly for 2 minutes and then mix in the tomato paste and cook for another 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Now add in the chunks of meat and stir in well making sure the meat is coated with the curry mixture.
    6. 6
      Add in water enough to cover the lamb (about 1/2 litre) giving it a good stir again and now reduce the heat to low and let this simmer gently with the lid on for 1 1/2 hours.
    7. 7
      Now add in the garam masala powder and cook for another 30 minutes till the sauce has thickened.
    8. 8
      Stir in the chopped coriander leaves and remove from heat.

      This is an amazing dish! We adored it, and I don't quite understand the previous reviewers mention of tasting bland, because I could never say that. This a robust, full of flavor and so comforting you might as well go put on your slippers. I followed this exactly, even down to the garlic-ginger paste, and the spices exploded with flavor. I also used my coffee grinder to blend all the lovely spices after heating, and this was just so enticing to devour the whole meal. I used a lamb shank, and didn't cut the meat off, just put it in the juices, and let it cook for about 2 hours. Let sit warmed for eating later, and it was even more pronounced with flavor. A exceptional recipe from start to finish. Thanks so much! A&A.

      Terribly bland. Despite all the prep work heating up the spices, there was hardly any flavor. Absolutely no spicy kick.

      Perfect! Don't change a thing. This will be my default Lamb curry from now on. I wonder if spinach would be ok in it to make a saag?
