Kumar Mahadevan's recipe for this famous Kashmiri Indian lamb curry is a winner. The lamb becomes meltingly tender and the spices smell enticing as you’re cooking them. The choice of saucepan is very important – the ingredients should fill no more than a quarter of its depth, so you need quite a deep pan with a heavy base to retain an even temperature.
Ingredients3 tbsp - vegetable oil
3 - bay leaves
2 tsp - cloves
3 - brown cardamom pods
1 tbsp - green cardamom pods
piece of cassia bark
1 tsp - fennel seeds
4 - small dried chillies
1 kg - red onions, sliced
½ tbsp - crushed ginger
½ tbsp - crushed garlic
1 tsp - turmeric
1 tsp - chilli powder
3 tsp - ground coriander
1 tbsp - crushed fresh chilli
2 - tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp - tomato puree
1 kg - cubed lamb (from a leg or shoulder)
2 tbsp - chopped coriander leaves
tomato wedges and coriander sprigs, to garnish
PreparationLevel of difficulty: medium
Stir in the crushed ginger and garlic and then the turmeric, chilli powder and ground coriander. Stir in the crushed fresh chilli and add a little water to stop the spices from burning. Add the tomato, tomato puree and a good pinch of salt and stir well to combine. Turn the heat up to high and add the meat, searing all over and coating in the flavours. Add a little more water. Cover with a lid and cook for 35–40 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the chopped coriander. Garnish with tomato wedges, julienned ginger and coriander sprigs.

Tearing basil leaves
Tear basil leaves with your fingers rather than chopping with a knife. The steel of a knife oxidizes the basil and will turn the cut edge of the basil black.
A soup or casserole base of chopped onion, celery and carrots. It can also contain ham or bacon.
