Lamb Yogurt Curry

Much have been said and spoken about mutton and lamb in my previous recipes of:

Mutton ball soup
Spicy mutton soup
Mutton kurma
Minced lamb and potato fried rice
Mutton in yoghurt mint gravy
Indian mutton curry

Therefore, I shall not bore you with a boring intro of repeating the same stuffs for the sake of doing it. Here's to another recipe to add to the collection I have. This version is all about the role play of the different types of spices commonly used in Indian dishes for that thick spicy gravy with tender lamb pieces.

400g lamb - cubed or cut into bite sizes
2 tbsp butter or margarine
2 medium size potatoes - cut into medium size cubes
2 tbsp yogurt 
Spices - 2 bay leaves, 2 sticks cinnamon, 3 cloves and 1 star anise
coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt for taste

Curry Paste
3 tbsp plain chilli powder (or as per taste)
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1 tsp crushed black pepper
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp blended/pounded onion
1 1/2 tsp blended/pounded ginger
1 tsp blended/pounded garlic
When butter is heated, fry the curry paste until aromatic and oil splits.
Add spices and stir in (1 or 2 mins)
Add lamb and salt for taste.
Keep stirring, about 2-3 mins to coat lamb over the curry paste.
Pour enough water and continue simmering until lamb is half cooked.
Add potatoes, stir and cook until lamb and potatoes becomes soft and tender.
Off heat and drop in yogurt and coriander leaves.
Gently stir to dilute yogurt. 
The curry is done.
