  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and ginger and sauté for 5 minutes. Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne pepper and garam masala, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  2. Increase heat to high, add lamb mince, and cook, stirring constantly to break meat up. Add yoghurt a tablespoon at a time, stirring so it combines well. Add orange juice, zest and bay leaf.
  3. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 45 minutes, or until tender. While cooking, skim and discard any excess oil on the surface. Season well to taste, then stir through green chilli, coriander and mint before serving.
