Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed

  • 2 pounds cubed lamb stew meat

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 tablespoon ground cardamom

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • 2 cups beef stock

  • salt to taste

  • ¼ cup plain yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook the lamb meat in batches until browned on all sides, using additional oil as necessary, about 3 minutes per batch. Set aside. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in the onions; cook until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the coriander, cumin, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; cook and stir until the spices are fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Return the lamb to the Dutch oven; pour in the beef stock and season with salt to taste. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the lamb is very tender, about 1 hour.

  3. Once the lamb is very tender, remove the lid, and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about 20 minutes. Stir in the yogurt and lemon juice before serving.
