Start by preparing the spinach. Place all of the spinach, chillies, coriander and lime juice in a food processor and blend to a smooth paste. You may need to add just a bit of water to do this. Set aside.
Now heat the ghee/oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium heat.
When hot, add the chopped onions and fry for about 15 minutes until translucent and soft but not overly browned.
Add the ginger and garlic pastes and allow to sizzle for about 30 seconds.
Add the ground spices and stir to combine..
Stir in the tomato puree and bring to a simmer. Then add a ladle or two of the base sauce and bring to a simmer, only stirring if it is sticking to the pan.
Stir in the lamb and ensure it is covered in the bubbling sauce. Then stir in the spinach puree.
Cook for a couple of minutes and then stir in the yoghurt.
Check for seasoning and add the salt to taste.
Stir in the lemon juice and sprinkle with the garam masala and dried fenugreek and serve.

Sunday 22nd of August 2021
You can buy frozen garlic and ginger in cubes in Asian shops. If you want to make it blend half garlic/ha;f ginger in a blender to a paste with a bit of water.

Do you realize that when a person tries to print, it sends the entire page of comments, ads and eventually perhaps the recipe?
