Lamb Curry

4 lb Boneless trimmed lamb shoulder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 c Vegetable oil
3 Onions; diced
2 tb Pureed garlic
2 tb Black mustard seeds
2 tb Garam masala
2 ts Turmeric
2 ts Ground cardamom
2 ts Ground cumin
1 ts Dried red pepper flakes
2 qt Brown lamb stock or canned chicken broth


For Serving
Cooked basmati rice
Orange Dal with Ginger and Garlic, see recipe


For Garnish/accompaniment
Plain yogurt
Fried Onions; see recipe


Cut meat, as uniformly as possible, into 2 by 3-inch cubes. Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat. Cook meat until golden brown on all sides, then reserve on a platter. In same pot, cook onions, stirring occasionally, until golden. Reduce heat to medium, add garlic and all dry spices, and cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return meat to pan and pour in lamb stock. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, 1 hour 15 minutes. Occasionally skim and discard fat that rises to the top.

Ladle warm stew over a bed of basmati rice and serve with Orange Dal with Ginger and Garlic. Garnish with yogurt (see Homemade yogurt recipe in this collection, if desired) and Fried Onions. Serve immediately.
