  • Stir in green cardamom, black cardamom, bay leaves, cinnamon stick, and cumin seeds until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onions, garlic, and ginger; cook until onion is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Mix in chile powder, turmeric, and salt; stir-fry for 1 minute. Add browned lamb, water, tomatoes, and chile peppers. Simmer over low heat until lamb is tender and all water has evaporated and onions have disintegrated into a thick gravy, about 40 minutes. Serve garnished with cilantro.

Another great lamb recipe! It’s different than any I’ve used and a nice variation. I couldn’t find any black cardamom so I used 4 green pods. I wasn’t sure whether to add them whole and green or toast them and use just the seeds... since the recipe didn’t specify, I used them whole and did not toast them. I also omitted the cilantro because my husband hates it. I expected this to be quite spicy, but it was only mildly spicy. Very tasty though, and everyone (4 adults and a toddler) liked it very much!
