This recipe has been with me for over 30 years; it was given to me by a Kashmiri guy I shared a house with when I was 17. This is his mum's family recipe. Kashmir's cuisine combines the area's fruits and nuts with the ingredients and the cooking style of the Moghuls. This rich stew makes a marvelous main dish. Serve it with hot steamed rice or crusty breads. This is lovely!

Cook's Notes:

You can also make this with mutton, goat or beef. It is one of those recipes that tastes great the next day too!

Warning: Make this with scotch bonnet or hotter peppers at your own risk!

Editor's Note:

To make this recipe in a slow cooker, follow steps 1 through 3. You may brown the lamb before adding it to the slow cooker, if you like (step 4). Combine all of the ingredients except the yogurt and cilantro in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Stir in the yogurt; cover and cook for 10 minutes more. Top with cilantro before serving.
