Preparation
STEP 1

In a large mixing bowl, toss lamb with curry powder and garam masala.

STEP 2

Heat a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat bottom of pan with ghee or oil. Add seasoned lamb and chile to pan. Brown well, working in batches if necessary.

STEP 3

Add onion, garlic and ginger and cook for 1-2 minutes.

STEP 4

Add bay leaves and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Add enough water or broth to just cover lamb. Reduce heat and simmer for 35-45 minutes, or until lamb is tender.

STEP 5

If sauce is still watery, increase heat and boil for a few minutes to thicken. Stir in yogurt and adjust seasoning to taste. Garnish with green onions and serve hot with steamed basmati rice.
