Lamb Bhuna

This Indian lamb bhuna curry is deeply flavorful with freshly ground Indian spices in a coconut milk, garlic and onion sauce with succulent, fall apart lamb. Bhuna, literally means "to brown", is a cooking technique where meat is browned with the spices and masala paste in the middle of the cooking process over high heat, which really intensifies the flavor of the dish.
