Onions are caramelized with green Chillies in Oil and Ghee to make the perfect base for this Lamb curry. The Lamb is then added and lightly browned with Ginger & Garlic paste.

A spice blend is made and water is added and this is poured over the meat

Dried fenugreek or Kasuri Methi is added together with tomato paste for color. Finally yogurt is added.

I like it spicy so I like to add more chilli powder and Garam Masala before mixing it.

Water is added and this is cooked till tender. Finally coriander is added before serving.
