Recipe Yield: Total time: 3 hours, 20 minutes, plus at least 30 minutes standing time | Makes 24 samosas
1 cup plain yogurt 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 tablespoon ground coriander 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated to a pulp 3 good-sized cloves garlic, peeled and crushed to a pulp 2 pounds ground lamb 4 tablespoons peanut or olive oil 2 sticks cinnamon, about 2 inches each in length 4 whole cardamom pods 2 bay leaves 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped 1/2 cup pureed tomatoes (also labeled strained tomatoes or passata in Indian markets) 1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen and defrosted) peas 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro 1 to 2 fresh green chiles (use either bird's-eye or cayenne-type chiles), finely chopped 1 teaspoon garam masala 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Step 1 Put the yogurt in a bowl and whisk lightly until smooth and creamy. Add the turmeric, cayenne, cumin, coriander, salt, ginger and garlic. Mix until well blended.

Step 2 Put the lamb into a large bowl. Pour the yogurt mixture over the top and mix (using your hands) until thoroughly blended. There should not be any pools of yogurt left.

Step 3Pour the oil into a large (preferably nonstick) saute pan and set over medium-high heat. When it is hot, put in the cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaves. Stir once or twice, then add the onion. Stir and fry about 5 minutes, or until the onion pieces are reddish brown.

Step 4Add all the meat. Stir and cook, breaking up the meat until lumps and pinkness are gone, about 5 minutes.

Step 5Add the tomato puree and stir. Bring to a simmer. Cover, turn the heat to medium-low and cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 6 to 7 minutes and making sure there is enough liquid so the lamb does not stick to the bottom. Uncover. Most of the liquid should have evaporated by this time.

Step 6Stir and fry the meat for the next 5 minutes, removing and discarding the cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods and bay leaves. After 5 minutes, spoon out as much of the fat as you can and discard it. Now add the peas, cilantro, green chiles (if desired), garam masala, cayenne, lemon juice and 6 tablespoons water. Mix, cover and cook on low heat for an additional 6 to 7 minutes, or until the peas are tender and no liquid is left. Makes 7 cups.
