- Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in the Anolon Advanced square 7-Qt square Casserole over medium heat. Toss the lamb with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and add half the meat to the pan. Cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining lamb.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the casserole. Stir in the onion, ginger and garlic and cook until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add the garam masala, cumin, coriander, turmeric, mustard seeds and cayenne pepper; cook, stirring, until very fragrant, 15-30 seconds. Stir in the lamb and any juices that have accumulated on the plate, the tomatoes, tomato paste and heavy cream; bring the mixture to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the lamb is tender and sauce thickens, about 1 hour 15 minutes, stir occasionally.
