Preparation Method :

  • Lamb Mince: Lightly grease a bowl with oil and place the mince in the centre. Add half the ginger-garlic paste with the remaining ingredients and ground spices.
  • With wet hands, divide the mince mixture into 15-16 equal size balls.
  • Roll each mince ball on a lightly oiled surface into a sausage-oval shape of 2 inches length.
  • Pinch the ends to seal. Set aside.
  • The Chilli Sauce: Heat the oil in a shallow pan over a medium heat and add the whole spices and the reserved ginger-garlic paste. Fry for 20-30 seconds.
  • Add a cup of water and bring to the boil. Gently place the prepared mince, one by one into the boiling water.
  • Hold the saucepan handle upwards slightly at an angle so that all the oil collects to one side and add the sugar.
  • Caramelize to a deep brown colour and then lower the saucepan down to its original position, gently swirling it to spread the oil.
  • Add the tomato puree, chopped tomatoes and ground spices except the garam masala. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stir gently.
  • Adjust seasoning with salt and chilli. Stir gently at regular intervals and take care not to fragment the mince pieces.
  • Pour in at least 3 cups of water and cook for a further 15-20 minutes or until it reduces to a runny sauce. Mix in the garam masala.
  • Finally add in the fresh coriander and finely chopped onion. Serve with Lemon Rice.
