Stove Top Method
Heat a heavy based pan and add a splash of EVOO- extra virgin olive oil.
Saute the meat till browned, add the spices and onion and continue to cook on medium high for a further a few more minutes, without browning or burning the spice mix.
Add 1/3 of the yogurt and fold through the meat mixture till well dispersed, and allow to cook for another minute to stabilize. Add the remaining yogurt plus an additional ¼ cup of water and stir through till combined.
Fold through the 1/3 cup of almonds, add the lid to the pan and allow to simmer for 1-2 hours or till meat is very tender.
Serve sprinkled with almond slivers or flakes and chopped coriander.
