Lamb Masala

Lamb masala

Got this recipe from the internet some time back. The best Lamb I have made so far. :)

INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 Kg Baby Lamb on the bone - cut into small pieces
  2. 3 Large onions – thickly sliced
  3. 6-8 Cloves of Fresh Garlic – Crushed
  4. 2 Inch Piece of Ginger – Grated
  5. 1 tablespoon Cumin Seeds
  6. 1 tablespoon Coriander Seeds – Crushed
  7. 1 tablespoon Mustard Seeds
  8. 3-4 pieces Cinnamon sticks
  9. 10 -12 Cloves
  10. 10 -12 Black Peppercorns
  11. 6-8 whole Bay Leaves
  12. Salt to taste
  13. 2 teaspoon Chilli Powder
  14. >1-1½ tablespoon Concentrated Tomato Puree
  15. 6-8 Whole Large Green Chillies
  16. Handful of Fresh Coriander
  17. 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil - I'm not a fan of too much oil. you can reduce the amount if you want.
METHOD

NOTE: I used a non stick pan –  you can use pressure cooker to cook meat faster.
  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. Add all the ingredients except the last 4 items and mix well.
  3. Cook till the meat is almost done.
  4. Give the food a good mix .
  5. Next add chilli powder and tomato puree and mix well.
  6. Cook on high heat for another 5-10 minutes.
  7. Add green chillies and chopped coriander & mix well.
  8. Serve with Naan or Poori
Usually I'm reluctant to cook mutton/lamb because it has a bad smell. This recipe didn't. I'm sure you will enjoy! You can always adjust the chilli according to your taste. All my dishes are a bit hot. :)
