Add curry leaves, bring to a rapid boil Reduce heat and allow to simmer for at least _1.5_ hours covered. Remove lid and simmer till sauce reduces, usually 15-30 minutes.

This is an exceptionally hot curry, if you prefer a milder curry reduce by half the following ingredients: chilli powder and hot paprika.

This recipe also lends itself to substituting chicken for the lamb.
