How to Make Kashmiri Lamb Recipe

  1. Place red chiles, green chiles, cumin seeds, garam masala, ginger, garlic, grated coconut, and tomatoes into a blender; pulse several times to chop, then blend into a smooth paste.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  3. Stir the spice paste into the onion and cook and stir until the oil separates from the mixture, about 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in lamb pieces and salt. Cook, stirring frequently over medium-high heat, until the lamb pieces are browned on all sides, about 8 minutes.
  5. Mix in yogurt, saffron, and blanched almonds until well combined.
  6. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until the meat is tender and the gravy is thick, about 1 hour.
  7. Garnish the curry with chopped cilantro before serving.
