Clean and remove the blade bone of the raan and then, using a sharp knife,
loosen the meat around the thigh bone (without exposing the bone) and then
make deep slits along the length. Wash and pat dry.

To marinate: Forcefully rub - as in massage - the lamb leg, inside and out,
with chilli powder. Repeat the process with salt, followed by raw papaya
paste, garlic paste, and finally ginger paste. (Each of these ingredients
should be rubbed separately into it and not as a mixture). Reserve for
one-and-a-half hours.

To prepare the cashewnut paste: Roast each of the ingredients separately on
a medium hot tawa. Grind with about 300 ml water to a smooth paste. Heat
ghee in a large flat pan and season with cardamoms, black cardamom, clove,
cinnamon and bay leaf. Stir over medium heat until the green cardamoms
change colour. Add the ginger paste and garlic paste and stir over medium
heat until the moisture evaporates. Lower the heat, add the cashewnut paste
and stir-fry until the ghee floats on top (sprinkle small quantities of
stock to prevent sticking). Then add chilli powder and stir for a few
seconds. Remove the pan from heat. Stir in the curd. Return the pan to heat
and add fried onions. Stir-fry until the ghee floats on top. Increase the
heat and add the marinated raan. Fry the meat well. Add the remaining stock
and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer till done. Remove the leg
and pass the gravy through a fine mesh sieve into a separate saucepan.
Return the gravy to heat, add the leg, mint leaves, coriander leaves and
salt. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat, add patthar phool powder and rose
petal powder. Stir well. Add saffron, stir and simmer till the gravy is of
ketchup consistency. Check the seasoning Arrange the leg in a serving plate
and pour the gravy over. Serve with sauteed potatoes.
