I think this recipe is from

Basic Lamb Curry
  • 1 T oil

  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2" pieces of lamb
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp corrainder powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • water
  • 1-2 green chilies, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • black pepper
  • handful chopped cilantro

  1. Heat oil. Add whole garam masala, onion, and salt. When onions begin to brown, add turmeric and ginger garlic. Sautee ginger garlic until the raw smell goes away. Add lamb. Stir. When lamb begins to become white, add cayenne pepper, corrainder powder, and cumin powder. Add 1 cup water. STir. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Add green chilies, coconut powder, and black pepper.
