- 1 teaspoon ginger paste or minced ginger
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
- Cooked rice or naan bread for serving
- Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
- Add the minced garlic and ginger paste or minced ginger to the pot, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
- Add the lamb stew meat to the pot and brown on all sides for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the curry powder, turmeric, cinnamon, ground cloves, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper, and cook for another 1-2 minutes to toast the spices.
- Add the potatoes, carrot, and red bell pepper to the pot, and stir to coat the vegetables with the spice mixture.
- Pour in the coconut milk and chicken or vegetable broth, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the stew simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the lamb is tender and the vegetables are cooked through.
- Whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the stew to thicken the sauce.
- Simmer the stew uncovered for another 5-10 minutes, occasionally stirring, until the sauce has thickened to your desired consistency.
- Serve the Tropical Lamb Stew hot, garnished with chopped cilantro, overcooked rice, or naan bread on the side.
