This is one of those curries which improves over time. First sitting is really good, second is great, third is fantastic! It's a fairly 'warm' curry, but you can reduce the heat by halving the quantities of chilli powder & paprika.
Heat oil in heavy pan.
Add onions and fry until golden brown.
Add garlic, ginger and all spices except salt.
Fry for 5 minutes until fragrant.
If mixture is too dry add a little water.
Stir regularly to prevent burning.
Add lamb and toss through to coat with onion/spices.
Fry further 10 minutes, stirring to prevent burning/sticking.
Add thawed spinach and mix thoroughly.
Add coconut cream and salt. Stir well.
Add curry leaves, bring to a rapid boil.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer for at least _1.5_ hours covered.
Remove lid and simmer till sauce reduces, usually 15-30 minutes.
This is an exceptionally hot curry, if you prefer a milder curry reduce by half the chilli powder and hot paprika quantities.
This recipe also lends itself to substituting chicken for the lamb.
This recipe was originally given to me by my good friend and fellow gastronome, Lynne Ferguson, although it has got through a metamorphosis through the addition of several ingredients of my choosing.
While I've put the cooking time down as 3 hours I usually leave it bubbling away on a very slow simmer (stirring on a regular basis) for at least 4-5 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it gets - dark, rich, luscious and the aroma wafts through the house & even the neighbours KNOW we're having a curry night!
Whenever I cook curry, it's always 3 or four curries which compliment one another. Lamb & Spinach, Chicken (for the kidlets, when they were still here), Pumpkin Curry and/or a Potato curry. It may seem labour intensive to create them all at the same time, but you reap the rewards with meals on tap for the rest of the week! Especially wonderful in cooler months!

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
