How to make it

  • Trim the excess fat from the lamb, then wash and drain the meat. Cut it into bite-sized cubes then place in a large saucepan with 1 tablespoon of salt and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, drain to remove the scum and rinse briefly. Set aside to drain thoroughly.
  • Use a pestle and mortar to pound the ginger, garlic and almonds to a fine paste. Set aside
  • In a cooking pot, heat the oil and quickly fry the curry leaves for a few seconds until fragrant. Remove them from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside for garnishing.
  • To the same pan add the cloves and cinnamon stick, then add the onions and the ginger-garlic-almond paste and cook, stirring, for approximately 5 minutes. Mix in the tomato purée and the curry powder and continue cooking and stirring until the mixture is fragrant. Add the lamb and the can of chopped tomatoes and cook for 30 minutes, stirring often.
  • Stir in the salt, sugar, coconut or evaporated milk and enough water enough to cover the meat. Bring to a boil and simmer until the lamb is tender, approximately 30 minutes. Garnish with the fried curry leaves before serving with pitta bread and rice, and a mango or aubergine chutney or pickle

    Wow! This looks great! I guess one can use regular sugar, palm sugar would be next to impossible to get in my town. By the way, sugar is a key ingredient in many dishes, I have found. It can make or break the recipe. It is especially good in spicy dishes. Thanks for the cool recipe.

    This sounds really splendid, but doesn't it make a lot? Could use a bit of guidance as to size of pot and serves how many!
