Lemon-flavored Lamb

Lamb 450g (1 lb) diced into 1 cubes
Onion, finely chopped 225g (1/2 lb)
Garlic, crushed 50g (2 oz)
Almonds, without skin 50g (2 oz)
Ground coriander 50g (2 oz)
Grated lemon rind 1/2 tsp.
Salt to taste
Oil sunflower 40ml (11/2 fl oz)
Garam masala 1 tsp.
Lemon juice to taste

To garnish

Lime & lemon slices
Whole almonds with skin


Grind onion, garlic, almonds and ground coriander in a food processor. Stir in oil, lemon rind and salt. Dip all the lamb pieces in this mixture and marinade in the fridge for 1 hour. In a heavy bottom, non-stick pan add lamb along with the marinade. Start cooking until all the liquid evaporates and oil starts separating; this should take 5 minutes Add just enough water to cook the lamb. Cover and simmer until lamb is tender. Add garam masala and lemon juice. Adjust the consistency of the sauce by adding a little water, if required. Bring to the boil. Add a few slices of lemon and immediately cover and remove from heat. Serve garnished with almonds and slices of lime and lemon. Serve hot over a bed of Basmati Rice.
