What makes this curry special is the 'bhuna' part. This consists of pan-frying the meat with spices. The meat cooks in its own juices, which is what gives the deep flavour. It is a bit time consuming, but the end result is delicious.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the green cardamom pods, black cardamom pods, bay leaves, and cinnamon stick in the hot oil until aromatic. Stir the onions, garlic, and ginger into the mixture. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking until the onions are golden brown; season with the red chili powder, turmeric, cumin, and salt. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking until the oil separates from the gravy, about 5 minutes more.

  • Place the lamb chops into the mixture in the skillet and increase heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until the lamb is cooked about halfway through and the sauce has created a glaze on the outside of the meat, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle the water over the mixture. Cover and cook until the lamb is tender, 15 to 20 minutes more. Remove the cover and add the green chile peppers and cilantro leaves. Increase the heat to high and cook another 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.
