Ingredients2 lb cubed lamb
2 Tbsp coriander seed
1 Tbsp cumin seed
2 lb crushed tomatoes
14 crushed garlic cloves
6 bay leaves
2 inches finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cardamon seed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 tsp ground mustard seed
1 Tbsp turmeric
1 cup wine vinegar
2 medium onions
2 medium potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
Instructions(1) Lightly roast the cumin seed and coriander seed by frying with no oil for a minute or so, stirring constantly. Grind these and combine them into a paste with the other spices, the garlic, ginger, and the vinegar.
(2) Add the lamb to the marinade and mix well. Refrigerate for 3-24 hours while mixing every few hours as convenient.
(3) Finely chop the onions and potatoes and saut e them for 5 minutes in the butter.
(4) Add lamb and spice paste and simmer over low heat for half an hour.
NotesThe marinating does add a lot of flavor and makes the meat much more tender. This can be skipped if need be.
