Preheat the slow cooker to Auto or Low setting.
In a food processor, blend the red chillies, green chillies, cumin seeds, garam masala, ginger, garlic, desiccated coconut, turmeric and tomatoes together into a smooth paste.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions until golden. Add the spice paste and fry it until the onions soften.
Now add the lamb and the salt and cook for 5 to 7 minutes stirring frequently. Transfer to the slow cooker, season and pour in the coconut milk. Cover.
Cook on Auto or Low for 8 hours stirring occasionally.
For the final 30 minutes of cooking, add the yoghurt (about 300g, but taste test first using less if you like a thicker more flavourful sauce), saffron and the blanched almonds and mix well. Serve garnished with chopped fresh coriander.
This curdled. A vast amount of sauce for the meat. Took far longer than the 15 minutes stated to prepare (it actually took an hour!). There was more than enough meat to serve six and not four. I won't be making it again. - 13 Dec 2015
This tasted amazing. My friend said it was "insane" after his 1st bite.
Preparation was just over 15 mins.
The sauce was a bit too liquidy so I added corn flour to thicken it up.
Next time maybe not put as much coconut milk as there was too much sauce.
It is for more than 4 people, but that's fine as its better to have some leftovers than not have enough.
Will definitely make this again with a few more tweaks as it tasted amazing. - 01 May 2016
