- In between stir, the lamb mince, potato and the spices are mixed well and have left water and oil while cooking.
- Let it cook till the lamb mince and potato are cooked well and is as per your consistency.

- It will be semi dry type masala curry, which goes well with chapathi(roti) or plain rice and any dal or rasam.
- Can avoid black cardamom and mace as it is over powering the curry.
- Can reduce spices as per your taste.
- Can add bones in the mince it will give more taste to the masala curry, if adding first roast the bones as it takes time to cook.
- No need to add water, as mince starts leaving water while cooking and the curd is added it will get cooked fast.
