Trim the lamb of nay hard fat and cut the meat into rough chunks of about 3cm. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a tsp of the oil in a large non stick frying pan and fry the lamb in 2 batches until lightly coloured on all sides. transfer the lamb to a plate as soon as each batch is browned.

Heat the remaining oil in a large flameproof casserole dish ad add the onions. Cook over a medium heat for 6 - 8 minutes until they're softened and lightly browned, stirring regularly. Turn down the heat, add the garlic, ginger, chilli and curry paste an cook for 5 minutes more, stirring frequently.

Remove from the heat and blitz the onion mixture with a stick blender until blended to a puree. Return the casserole to the hob, over a medium heat. Preheat the oven to 190c / 170c Fan / Gas 5.

Add the browned lamb to the spiced onion puree in the dish and cook over a gentle heat for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring. Add the canned tomatoes, potatoes, water, bay leaves, tsp of salt and the sugar. Bring everything to a gentle simmer, then cover with a lid and palce the casserole in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the lamb is tender and the sauce has thickened. Check after 1 hour and give the contents of the casserole dish a good stir.

Take the dish out of the oven and remove the lid. Stir in the quartered tomatoes and spinach leave. Cover once more and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and the spinach has wilted. Serve hot with some spoonfuls of fat free yoghurt if you wish.
