DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the shanks and cook, turning for 5 minutes or until brown. Remove to a plate.
  • Add the onion and garlic, and cook gently for about 5 minutes or until soft.
  • Add the spices and cook, stirring, for about 30 seconds.
  • Return the lamb shanks to the saucepan with the tomatoes and stock, and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a medium-low simmer and cook for one hour covered.
  • Uncover and cook a further 30 minutes or until the lamb is tender.
  • Remove the lamb and keep warm, increase the heat under the saucepan to high and bring the stock mixture to the boil.
  • Boil, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens (it WILL happen and is much nicer than a flour thickened sauce!).
  • Sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves and serve with yogurt on the side.
