Lamb Curry

Wooo one of my favorite, simple yet delicious Lamb curry .I got this recipe from my sister ,she prepares amazing food .Most of my recipes revolve around my sis,mom,athamma n grand mom's authentic cooking.Would love to thank my sister(akka) for sharing this recipe with me.
This recipe serves 3.Cooking time 40 min.
Ingredients:
Lamb - 1lb
Onion - 1 big
Green Chili - 1(Add according to taste)
Salt to taste
Cilantro - 1/4 cup
Ginger Garlic Paste - 2tsp
Meat masala - 1tsp
Red Chili powder - 1tsp
Clove - 1
Cardamom/Elaichi - 1
Cinnamon - 1/4 stick
Curd - 1/2 cup
Oil - 3tsp
Tomato - 1/2 small
Turmeric - a pinch
Method:
1.Wash and pressure cook lamb with curd ,red chili powder,salt,meat masala,1 tsp ginger garlic paste.Make sure not to over cook the lamb.
2.Mean while chop the onions(very thin) ,green chillies,cilantro,tomato.Keep them aside.
3.Heat oil in a pan , add raw garam masala(clove,cardamom,cinnamon stick) and saute them for min.Add green chiilies,onions and fry the onions until they are golden brown.Add ginger garlic paste ,saute until the raw smell disappears.
4.Add turmeric,chopped tomato and cook it until the tomatoes are completely cooked.Add red chili powder,salt,meat masala powder,mix and cook for a min .Now its time to add pressure cooked lamb and cook it for 5-8 min.Add water if you need more gravy.Check out the seasoning add if anything is required,add cilantro and switch off the heat.
Serve it hot lamb curry with any Indian bread/rice.
Note:Instead of pressure cooking and then cooking in a pan you can do all in one shot.Once I had a bad experience with oil b/c lamb by itself oozes out oil so add little oil.
