Number of Servings: 2


    1 tbsp olive oil
    250g lean lamb, cut into 5cm/2in cubes
    1 onions, peeled, thinly sliced
    1cm root ginger, peeled, grated
    1 clove garlic, peeled, crushed
    tbsp Malaysian curry powder (see separate recipe)
    0.5 tsp chilli powder
    tsp saffron strands, soaked in 30ml warm water
    50g cashew nuts, blended to a paste with 1 tbsp water
    1 cinnamon stick
    125ml plain yoghurt
    1 tomatoes, cut into quarters


1. Heat 0.5 tablespoon of the oil in a lidded wok, add the lamb, in batches if necessary, and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until browned all over. Remove the lamb from the wok and set aside.

2. Heat the remaining oil in the wok used to cook the lamb and fry the onion, ginger, garlic, the Malaysian curry powder and all of the chilli powder for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant (NB: Do not let the mixture burn).

Add the reserved lamb to the wok and season to taste, with salt. Stir until well combined. Stir in the saffron strands and soaking water, cashew nut paste, cinnamon stick, then pour in enough water to cover the lamb by 2.5cm/1in. Bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover the wok with the lid and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 1-1 hours. (You may need to add more water if the mixture begins to dry out.)

Stir in the yoghurt and tomatoes and return the mixture to a simmer for 1-2 minutes.

Serve with rice garnished with coriander leaves.
