Once cooled it all needs to be ground in a powder.

Next the nutmeg, cocconut, mace and almonds need to be fried untill they have turned a light brown colour.

Next the onions need to be fried in the oil for about 5 minutes when the garlic, ginger and bay leaves are added. These should also turn a golden brown colour.

Add the lamb and fry untill browned and then add the spices that you crushed earlier, the tumeric and a bit of salt. Next add the tomatoes and cook untill it turn fairly thick, (any liquid should be soaked up into the mixture).

Once thickened, add the yogurt and water and then bring to the boil and let cool. Cover it and let it simmer for about 10 minutes or untill the meat has turned nice and soft.
