Lamb Qorma

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Lamb Qorma is an all-time favorite at my home. Although, i admit it wasn't easy to get to this point where it is perfect! It requires a lot of roasting, grinding and stirring to reach perfection. A mistake in any step is bound to change the taste and texture completely. So, lets go ahead and make it :)


lamb meat- 1 pound with bones
ginger/garlic paste-1 tbs
salt-to taste
turmeric powder-1 tsp
red pepper powder-11/2 tsp
garam masala-1 tsp
almonds-10 (roasted)
cashews-5 roasted
poppy seeds -1 tbs roasted
coconut powder-1/2 cup roasted until light brown
chironji-1 tbs roasted
yogurt- 1/2 cup beaten
onion-1 medium
mint leaves- 1 tbs chopped
cilantro-1 tbs chopped
oil- 3 tbs
potatoes-3 medium(cut and slightly roasted with little a bit of oil)

Method: Marinate lamb eat with ginger-garlic paste, salt, turmeric powder, pepper powder for half an hour. Then pressure cook until you hear four whistles and put aside. 

Grind all the roasted ingredients very well in a spice grinder or a coffee grinder until soft and add yogurt to it and run a hand blender in it to make it softer. Heat oil in a pot and fry onions until golden brown and put the ground ingredients and start stirring every 30 seconds making sure the mixture dosen't burn. Stir until all the mixture is well roasted and separates from oil. At this point, add the cooked meat  along with the potatoes and let it come to a boil. after adding more water to get desired consistency. Add the garam masala Reduce the heat and cook for ten minutes and garnish with chopped mint leaves and cilantro and turn the stove off. Enjoy!
