Salt and pepper to taste

 

Raita:

100g plain yogurt

Few tbsp fresh mint

Crush the cloves and cardamon pods with pestle and mortar and remove cardamon shells. Put the rest of spices in and combine them. Heat up ghee on a medium heat and add the spices and sliced onion, cook for a couple of minutes then add the cubed lamb, ginger and garlic, cook for a few minutes until lamb is brown, then add the lemon juice, tomatoes and season. Transfer to slow cooker and cook on low for four and a half hours. Add the honey, spinach and cubed pepper and leave in slow cooker for remaining half hour. In the meantime cook your red rice 30 -35 mins (red or black rice has a higher antioxidant value than brown or white rice). Make your raita with the yogurt, cubed cucumber and torn up mint. Add the fresh coriander to curry when serving.
