    JustJanS's Note:

    I got this from an Indian cookbook, but we have simplified it over the years so it could be made reasonably quickly for our Friday curry night after work. Our boys loved this even before they thought they liked curry! This is the most cooked recipe from the cookbook.

      Add the remaining oil to the pan and fry the spice mix and ground poppy and sesame seeds for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
    3. 3
      Add the lamb and fry until all the liquid has evaporated (about 10 minutes) stirring frequently.
    4. 4
      Add the turmeric, stir and fry 30 seconds.
    5. 5
      Add the salt and water and cook over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, put the milk and fried onions into a blender and pulse until smooth.
    7. 7
      Stir this milk mix into the meat and bring back to the boil.
    8. 8
      Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the gravy is thick.
    9. 9
      Add the chopped coriander and cashews and cook a further 5 minutes.
    10. 10
      Serve sprinkled with extra chopped coriander.

      What a great recipe! The only modifications I made were to drop the poppy seeds since I didn't have any, I used tahini since I was out of sesame seeds and no cashews since I am allergic to cashews. Served all this wonderful dish over white rice with a side salad.
