Preparation Instructions:

Set a fine strainer over a bowl and strain the yogurt in it for 1 hour. Discard the whey in the bowl. Blend the ginger, chilies, garlic, and water to a paste. Grind together the almonds and all the spices.

Heat the oil or ghee in large, heavy pan and fry the onion until golden. Stir in the ginger paste and the ground almonds and spices, and fry for 2-3 minutes more. Add the meat and stir well to coat it with the spices. Add the yogurt and saffron, season with salt, and cover the pan lightly.

Simmer over very low heat for 1 1/2- 2 hours, until the lamb is tender. Stir frequently to make sure it is not sticking. If necessary, add a little water. Garnish with the cilantro.
