  1. Heat oil in a pot and brown the lamb cubes on all sides. Once browned, remove the lamb from the pot and set it aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the sliced onions, minced garlic, and ginger paste. Cook until the onions are soft and slightly browned.
  3. Add the bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, crushed cardamom pods, and whole peppercorns. Stir continuously until the spices become fragrant.
  4. Incorporate the coriander, cumin, cloves, cayenne pepper, paprika, and garam masala into the pot. Cook for about 30 seconds, stirring to evenly coat the spices.
  5. Return the browned lamb to the pot, along with the beef stock. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and let it simmer for approximately 1 1/2 hours. If needed, add water to maintain the desired consistency. The liquid should reduce and thicken during this cooking time.
  6. Stir in the cream and season with salt to taste. Continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
