Lamb Korma

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

This tasty korma calls for patient cooking. The spicing can be kept to a minimum. However, one can add a maximum of 20 spices like almonds, cashewnuts, pine nuts and cream to make a rich and delicious meal on festive occasions.

This is a good, easy and extremely flexible and forgiving recipe. I made two batches, in one I used leftover rare leg of lamb and in the other I used leftover chipotle-pineapple ham and a bag of frozen cauliflower. Because I used meat that was already cooked I reduce the final cooking time considerably. I look forward to making this in a more traditional way at some point.
