  1. Heat the ghee in a pan and fry the meat over a medium heat for a few minutes to brown it. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set to one side.
  2. Add the chopped onions to the pan and fry for 5 minutes until they become translucent.
  3. Add the garlic & ginger paste, the chillis, the spices and half of the chopped coriander. Pour on a cup of water and mix well.

  5. Add in the yoghurt, the sliced onions and the remaining coriander. Mix well, cover and simmer for a further 30-40 minutes. Serve
Titli's Tips
If you feel you need to thicken the gravy, add 1 tbsp of cornflour dissolved in a small amount of water to the pan 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
