Take a large saucepan and add enough sun­flower oil to cover the base. Add the sliced onions and nigella seeds. Fry the onions, stir­ring in­ter­mit­tently so they are evenly browned – they should be a dark brown golden colour. Be pa­tient, this may take some time. Add the can of toma­toes and stir. Add the gar­lic, gin­ger and green chilli pastes. Stir to com­bine. Add the turmeric, salt, co­rian­der and cumin and stir. You should now have a thick curry masala gravy. Add the lamb chops and stir to coat. Bring to the boil, then cover, lower the heat and sim­mer. Al­low to cook for one hour, stir­ring ev­ery 15 min­utes to coat and cook the chops evenly. When the cook­ing time is up, gar­nish with a hand­ful of fresh co­rian­der. Serve with rice, or your favourite breads.
