Here are the ingredients and steps to make this recipe!
2 cups yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsps Salt
6 tbsps Ginger and Garlic paste
½ tsp Turmeric
2 tsps each Cumin, Chilli, fresh black crushed pepper, coriander powder and Garam Masala
1 cup fried onions

7 lb (3 kg) boneless Lamb
3 tbsps Papaya paste
½ cup fresh Coriander and Mint
2 + 2 cups finely minced onions
2 green chillies (2 tbsps) sliced
1 green chilli slit in half

Potato Wedges

In a bowl add yogurt and sour cream and mix this together
Add salt and the fresh Ginger and Garlic paste
Add ½ tsp Turmeric, 2 tsps each Cumin, Chilli, fresh black crushed pepper, coriander powder and Garam Masala
Add 1 cup fried onions and mix well
Prepare the 7 lb that is about 3 kg chunk of boneless lamb by removing the net and making deep gashes in the flesh

Add about a cup of the prepared marinade and then add the Papaya paste

Throw in the chopped fresh coriander and mint
You want to make sure that that marinde goes into every nook and cranny
Flip it over and get the other side as well
Marinate this in your fridge overnight
In a large kadai or wok heat up some oil and saute the 2 out of 4 cups of minced onions and add some salt to caramelize faster
Add the green chillies
Add the lamb divided into 2 chunks to fit and sear the lamb on both sides
Remove the lamb and keep aside
Throw some potato wedges in as well and cook them till they pick up all the onion and chilli from the oil
When these are about half done, remove the potatoes add them with the lamb on a oven proof tray
Add a bit more oil in and saute the rest of the minced onion
Add one green chilli slit in half
While the onion is sweating, pop your lamb into a 350 degree over. Your cooking time will depend on your level of doneness that you prefer … for something like this, I prefer a more medium to well done, so I’m going to cook this for 20 – 30 mins
Add the rest of the marinade that was stored
Add salt to taste and heat till it starts to bubble and you see the oil floating at the top
