Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Combine all the spice mix ingredients. Set aside.
Add the lamb, curry powder and salt to a small pot. Cover with chicken stock and bring to a simmer.
Cook until the lamb is tender. This takes as long as it takes. Once you can insert a fork into the lamb without resistance it's ready.
Drain the lamb and set aside. If you want, keep the stock. It makes a great addition to any home style lamb curry.
Be ready. Have your curry base simmering on the stove. Make your spice mix. Chop all the ingredients and have them at the ready. This is going to go very fast. You don't have time to mess around.
Thaw the spinach. Drain it well.
Heat a skillet over medium heat.
Add the oil. When it shimmers add the onion and green chilies. Cook, stirring constantly, until the onions just start to brown on the edges. This takes 2-3 minutes.
Add the garlic ginger paste and cook until it stops sputtering, about 1 minute.
Lower the heat to medium low. Add the spice mix. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 30-45 seconds. You want to bloom the spices in the oil. You don't want to burn it. If you burn the spices, start again. There's no fixing it.
Add the diluted tomato paste and cilantro. Stir to combine and cook for about a minute.
Turn the heat up to medium high. Add 3 oz of the curry base. Stir to combine and cook until it it starts to crater. Little holes will appear. See the guide to Indian curries to understand what this means if you aren't sure.
Add another 6 oz of curry base. Stir to combine and cook until it craters.
Now add the remaining curry base. Cook until it craters and reduce the heat to low. Add the lamb and spinach and stir to mix. Simmer for about 5 minutes. If the curry gets too dry add a bit more curry base.
Add the fresh lemon juice. Stir to combine. Serve. Enjoy!
