       1 pk Frozen chopped spinach
   Heat oil in heavy pan.  Add onions and fry until golden brown.  Add
   garlic, ginger and all spices except salt.  Fry for 5 minutes until
   fragrant. If mixture is too dry add a little water.  Stir regularly
   to prevent burning. Add lamb and toss through to coat with
   onion/spices. Fry further 10 minutes, stirring to prevent
   burning/sticking.  Add thawed spinach and mix thoroughly.  Add
   coconut cream and salt.  Stir well. Add curry leaves, bring to a
   rapid boil.  Reduce heat and allow to simmer for at least 1.5 hours
   covered.  Remove lid and simmer till sauce reduces, usually 15-30
   minutes.  This is an exceptionally hot curry, if you prefer a milder
   curry reduce by half the following ingredients: chilli powder and hot
   This recipe also lends itself to substituting chicken for the lamb.
