Then add the tomato purée and the ground spices apart from the garam masala and cook for a min , add splash of hot water from the kettle if it’s sticking

Add the lamb and coat with mixture in the pan

Add tinned tomatoes and enough water to just barely cover the lamb. Bring to a simmer . Put the lid on and cook for 45 mins checking now and again and stirring

Take off the lid and bubble down until lamb is tender and sauce is at the consistency you like approx 30 - 45 mins
