Add 1 tsp tumeric, 2 tsp ginger and garlic paste, 3 tbs bombay masala, 2 tbs chilli powder and braise for +-5 mins.
Add 1 kg each of lamb ribs and leg meat (2kg altogether), curry leaves and mix well with braised spices and cook on medium high heat until almost done(+-40mins).
Add 1 medium cabbage (sliced to your liking), half can tomato purée, 2 stock cubes (optional) and cook for +-20mins.
Add water, a little at a time only if necessary as the cabbage releases much liquid.
