  • 400g diced lamb leg
  • 400ml water

  • Add the onions, turn down the heat a little and cook for around 10 minutes until they’re soft.
  • Add the garlic and fry for another few minutes before adding all of the ground spices.
  • Cook just for a minute or so and then add the tomato puree, give it all a stir before adding the lamb, cooking and stirring for 2-3 minutes until the meat is well coated.
  • Add the water, cover and simmer for around 90 minutes until the lamb is tender.
  • Stir through the natural yogurt and serve, garnished with coriander. Enjoy with rice and naan bread.
