Preparation Method :

  • Spice Mix Toast all the spices, except the turmeric, in a dry frying pan until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Let cool slightly.
  • Grind the toasted spices and turmeric to a powder with a pestle and mortar or spice grinder.
  • Korma Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok over medium- high heat. Add the lamb and stir-fry until browned all over, 10 minutes. Remove the lamb and set aside.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the wok and sauté the onions, ginger, garlic, spice mix, and chilli powder until fragrant, 5 minutes.
  • Return the lamb to the wok, season with salt, and stir until well combined. Stir in the saffron and soaking water, cashew paste, and cinnamon stick, then pour in enough water to just cover the lamb.
  • Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the meat is very tender, about 2 hours. Add more water if the mixture begins to dry out.
  • Stir in the yogurt and tomatoes and simmer for 3 minutes. Serve hot with the rice, garnished with the cilantro.
