2 pounds boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
salt to taste
2 tablespoons butter, divided
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric (optional)
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup water
1/2 cup creme fraiche
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro DIRECTIONS
Season the lamb with garam masala and salt. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the lamb cubes until browned, stirring constantly. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and season with turmeric, ginger, and garlic. Cook and stir until the onion is tender and spices are fragrant. Stir in the chili powder and tomato paste until well blended, then stir in the water. Bring to a simmer and return lamb to the skillet. Simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes, or until lamb is tender.
When the lamb is cooked, stir in the creme fraiche and honey. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with cilantro.
