Lamb with Spinach
recipe adapted from Madhur Jaffery
500g boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tsp peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
5 garlic cloves, crushed to a pulp
2 tbsp ground coriander
5 tbsp oil
1 cup fried shallots
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp chillie powder
4 tbsp plain yogurt
500g fresh spinach, washed
Put the meat in a bowl, add the ginger, garlic, and coriander, mix well, and set aside for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan. Add in the meat, together with its marinade. Add the turmeric, chillie powder, and salt, and stir for 1 minute. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, removing the lid occasionally to stir the contents.
Remove the lid and add 1 tablespoon of the yogurt. Cook, stirring, until the yogurt is absorbed. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of the yogurt in this way, 1 tablespoon at a time. Then stir in the spinach.
Add in the fried shallots. Continue to stir until the spinach has wilted. Then cover the pan and cook over very low heat for 50 minutes, or until the meat is tender, lifting the lid to stir now and then. The spinach should cling to the meat.

Lee Lin -- Muna teringin nak badan macam Olive Oyl, tapi dah jadi macam Bluto pulak!!
RinnChan -- kalau ikut citarasa Muna yang luarbiasa ni, this dish makes a difference from the normal curry and memang sedap and Elsa didn't even realised she was eating vegetables.
