For the spice paste:
- 1½ tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
- 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
- 2 teaspoons mustard seeds
- 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
- ¾ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
- 4 tablespoons water
For the curry:
- 3 tablespoons ghee or clarified butter
- 2 large onions, sliced
- 6 cloves garlic, crushed
- 85g root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
- 8 greencardamom pods, crushed
- 3 fresh green chillies, seeds removed and finely chopped
- 2 x 400g can chopped tomatoes in juice
- 4 tablespoons tomato purée
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1kg lamb leg meat, cut into 4cm chunks
- 300ml vegetable stock or water
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 6 tablespoons fresh coriander, roughly chopped
- 6 tablespoons natural yoghurt
Heat the oil in the casserole, add the spices for the spice paste and fry over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until the seeds begin to pop, stirring occasionally so they do not catch and burn.
Once cooled grind the spices to a paste with a pestle and mortar or in a small blender, add the 4 tablespoons of water to loosen the mix. Reserve for later.
Heat the ghee or clarified butter in the casserole and fry the onions for 3-4 minutes until softened, add the garlic, ginger, cardamom pods, and fresh chilli and continue to fry for 1 minute more.
Add the canned tomatoes, tomato purée and salt then stir in the spice mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes without the lid, stirring occasionally.
Add the meat to the sauce, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add the stock or water, put on the lid and simmerover a low heat for 1¼ to 1½ hours until the meat has become tender and the sauce has reduced and thickened nicely. Stir the curry occasionally during this time.
Stir in the garam masala, half the fresh coriander and adjust the seasoning to taste.
Continue to simmer for approximately 5 minutes without the lid, stirring occasionally until the sauce has become a thick coating consistency.
Serve the curry with the yoghurt spooned over and the remaining fresh coriander.

Handles are great and I love the stainless steel Review by Meagan
This keeps the food warmer longer and this casserole dish has such a beautiful vibrant color. I have bought a few of these in different sizes and just love the way they are designed. They way they are made they are so easy to grasp when you pull out of the oven . A great bonus is that they clean very easy and does not leave a stain. (Posted on 4/27/16)
