1. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick pan and brown the lamb in batches for 3-4 minutes. Spoon into a 1.2l heatproof casserole dish.

2. Add the remaining oil to the same pan and cook the onion, garlic, ginger and spices for 3-4 minutes or until soft and golden. Spoon into the casserole dish.

3. Add the tomatoes, stock and chillies if using. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and cook for 2-2½ hours or until the lamb is tender, stirring occasionally. Season if required.

4. Around 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the potato and lime juice. Garnish with the coriander and black mustard seeds and serve with basmati rice, naan bread and a selection of Indian relishes.
