Ingredients

Cucumber raita

Method

1.Combine cardamom, cumin and coriander in medium bowl, add lamb; toss lamb to coat in spice mixture.
2.Heat butter and half of the oil in large deep saucepan; cook lamb, in batches, until browned all over. Remove from pan.
3.Heat remaining oil in same pan; cook onion, ginger, garlic, paprika and cayenne over low heat, stirring, until onion softens.
4.Return lamb to pan with stock, undrained tomatoes, bay leaves and cinnamon. Add yogurt, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring well between each addition; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, about 1½ hours or until lamb is tender.
5.Meanwhile, make cucumber raita. Combine ingredients in small bowl with salt and pepper to taste.
6.Sprinkle lamb with nuts and chilli off the heat; serve with raita and, if desired, warmed naan bread.

Rogan josh is slightly milder than many curries due in equal part to the fairly large amount of tomato used and the very little chilli found in the paste.
