Heat the oil in a deep pot on medium heat. Add the green chillies and fry until it stops spluttering.

Add the lamb with the marinade and fry stirring frequently for 5 – 7 minutes.

Now add the tomatoes, koljana/coriander and jeera/cumin powder and mix well.

Sprinkle some water over the meat, cover, lower the heat and cook till the meat is done.
