Coconut Lamb and Spinach Curry


One morning I was looking to make a breakfast curry. I first grabbed ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise, but then I looked in the fridge and saw beautiful tomatoes and spinach. I decided Saag Gosht, a northern Indian dish, that is a tomato based curry. Typically, you would roast spices, but this version is suffice on flavor and brings a richness from Indian cuisine that you might not be accustom to for breakfast, but works. Dana is not a big curry fan, but I can get her to eat when it is tomato based!
