  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over high heat. Add onion, chile pepper, and garlic. Fry, stirring constantly, until onion is slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add lamb and stir vigorously for 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, cumin, coriander, salt, turmeric, and cayenne; cook until sauce is thick and oil starts to separate, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add potatoes and water. Cover, leaving the lid slightly ajar, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until lamb is tender and sauce is thick, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep lamb and potatoes from sticking to the bottom.
