Lamb korma

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2½ pounds Lamb; cut into pieces
2 Garlic cloves
½ ounce Ginger; fresh
2 cups Water; cold
1 Onions; finely chopped (up to 2)
¼ pounds Butter (undoubtably should be ghii, instead)
½ cup Yoghurt
2 tablespoons Tomato paste
1 tablespoon Coriander powder
2 Cloves
2 Cardamoms
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 Stick cinnamon; small
Cayenne powder to taste; the more the merrier
Salt to taste

(from Diipak's book in India, ~1970) Monce garlic and ginger into a bowl and add 2 C. cold water.

Saute onion in half of the butter until transparent. Add yoghurt, tomato paste, spices, and salt.

Saute meat in another pan in remaining butter until golden. Stir in the spice mixture, add some of the garlic-ginger infusion, and simmer, covered, until meat is tender. Add more garlic-ginger water from time to time as necessary. (The sauce for korma should be very very thick.) Correct seasonings and serve with cooked rice.
