  1. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  2. Curry: Heat some olive oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. In batches, add the lamb, brown on all sides and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, blitz together the onion, ginger, garlic and chillies until a smooth paste forms. Pour the paste into the saucepan and fry for 2 minutes, or until aromatic. Add the spices and fry for a further 3 minutes. Return the lamb to the pan and add the salt, coconut milk and stock. Bring to a simmer, cover and place in the oven for 2 hours.
  4. In a food processor, blitz the cashews until finely ground. Add to the curry and cook for a further 10 minutes.

  5. Raita: In a small frypan over a medium heat, toast mustard seeds. Once they begin to pop, remove from heat. Place in a bowl along with the remaining raita ingredients.
  6. To serve: Serve the curry with jasmine rice, cucumber, raita, coriander and poppadoms.
