Here you go, this one is from the "meat" thread.

2 dried red chillies
2 teaspoons coriander seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon cardamom seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
1. 2 kg boneless lamb leg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or ghee
1 onion, sliced
2 teaspoons chopped ginger
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup yoghurt
3/4 cup water
6 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
4 long green chillies, slit in half, seeds removed (if desired)

Place red chillies, coriander, cumin, peppercorns and cardamom in a small frying pan. Cook over high heat until fragrant. Remove and place in a spice grinder along with the turmeric. Grind to a powder.

Trim lamb of excess fat and cut into 4cm cubes.

Heat oil in a large heavy-based saucepan. Add onion and cook until golden. Add ginger and garlic and cook a further couple of minutes. Add the spice mix.

Add lamb and stir to coat with the spices. Mix in the yoghurt along with the water, cloves, cinnamon and green chillies. Simmer, covered for 11/2 hours or until lamb is tender. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the sauce is reduced and thickened.

This is a perfect "pot luck" dinner and great when the nights get really chilly ( excuse the pun LOL)

Just lessen the chilli if you want something milder.

Hi cookessentials, do you suppose that with your lamb curry recipe I could turn it into a pie. Want to make something a little different for friends coming to dinner :)

cookessentials, Jul 27, 8:38am
Hi toeblister, I dont see why not. It might be a great way of servinng it, just make sure that it is thick enough before adding to the pie shell.
