  • 1kg lamb with bone
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized onion to prepare onion paste
  • 2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 plain yoghurt
  • Salt to taste
  • 3-4 tablespoons of oil


  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 green cardamoms
  • 7-8 cloves
  • 7-8 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Cut one onion into small cubes and blend it in a blender.
  • In a large bowl, put the lamb pieces. Add salt, ginger-garlic paste, onion paste, two tablespoons of oil, yoghurt and all the ground spices.
  • Mix everything very well to integrate the spices with the meat and let it marinate for 2 hours or overnight into the fridge.
  • Put a pan with oil on medium-high heat. When it is hot add bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cardamoms, cloves and whole black peppercorn.
  • Add chopped onions and fry until golden brown.
  • Add the marinated meat. Stir everything well and let it cook on high heat until the meat releases the water.
  • Add 1 cup of water and lower the flame to medium-low and cover the pot.
  • Let it cook with the lid on until the lamb is tender and don’t forget to stir periodically so that it does not stick to the bottom.
  • Once you are happy with the colour and the consistency of the gravy turn off the heat and let it rest with the lid on for few minutes before serving.
  • Serve them with Luchi, Chapati or Naan.
