Steps

1
Done

If you want toasted almonds for decoration start by toasting the almonds in a medium heat pan until they start to go golden and release their fantastic aroma. Transfer to a plate to use for decoration at the end

2
Done

heat the oil in a pan and add the cassia bark, cardamom pods and onion and fry on medium for about 7 minutes until golden

3
Done

add the garlic and fry for a further 30-60 seconds until the bitter smell disappears

4
Done

add the pepper, cumin, coriander, salt, mix powder, turmeric, tomato puree, coconut powder, ground almonds and sugar. Stir well and add 1/4 of the water to ensure it doesn't stick

5
Done

add the meat, coat and fry for a couple of minutes adding a little more water if it's looking dry

6
Done

add the raisins, coconut block and cream. Stir through and allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes until the sauce reaches your desired consistency and the meat is cooked through. You only need to stir if the dish looks like it's about to burn

7
Done

it's fine to add extra water if it's looking a little thick. I would suggest around 50ml at a time

8
Done

serve topped with the toasted almonds and sprinkled with the chopped coriander
