- Begin by preparing your ingredients (which makes cooking easier). Cube the lamb, mince the garlic and ginger, slice the onion.
- In a large pot or dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp of ghee over medium high heat. Sear the lamb for about 10 minutes, stirring to evenly cook. Sprinkle with about 1/2 tsp of Himalayan Pink Salt. Remove meat and set aside.
- Reduce heat to medium. Add the onion and saute until soft and it begins to get golden in color. Add the garlic and ginger, continue to saute another minute.
- Add the tomato puree, water, yogurt, and curry powder. Stir to combine. Cover with a lid (the lid can be askew to let some moisture escape), and simmer for one hour. Stir every 15 minutes during the hour to prevent the sauce at the bottom of the pot from burning.
- When the dish has cooked 30 minutes, prepare rice or your choice of side dish to enjoy.
- At the end of the hour of cooking, add the Garam Masala and stir to combine. Cook another few moments, then remove from heat.
- Serve over rice, garnished with fresh cilantro.
