cookbook challenge: Lamb Korma with Cashews

When my friend Kiki came for a visit last month I also made another curry for us. Because Kiki loves lamb curry, the decision was almost easy. I chose the Lamb Korma this time because it doesn't need much ingredients but many spices X3

Lamb Korma with Cashews

Ingredients (4 portions)
800 g lamb meat, sliced in pieces
4 onions + 6 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tsp caraway seeds
2 dried chilis
1 tsp black pepper & green cardamom each
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp mustard grains
1 tsp fenugreek seed
4 tbs vinegar + 2 tsp palm sugar
Salt + 10 g ginger, grated
4 tbs oil
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp curcuma
4-6 tbs roasted cashews


Roast the spices and pestle them. Mix the spice powder with vinegar, sugar and salt. Mash garlic and ginger with a bit of water und put it aside.

Heat oil and roast the onions till they are golden. Mash the onions with 4 tbs water and add the spice mixture to make a paste.

Heat up the rest of the oil and fry the meat from every side. Put it aside.
Roast the ginger-garlic-paste shortly. Add coriander and curcuma and stir fry it. Mix in meat, the spice paste and 300 ml water, let everything cook covered on low heat for about 45 minutes. Taste korma with salt, garnish it with the cashews and serve with basmati rice.

The taste was very good but the sauce boiled almost dry so it was just a bit left for the rice >.<
Maybe the heat wasn't low enough...
