  24. seeds and salt. Add the lamb and turn it about with a spoon until all

  25. the pieces are evenly coated. Marinate the lamb at room temperature

  26. for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the almonds and the rest of

  27. the boiling water in a bowl, and soak for 10 minutes. Pour the

  28. almonds and their soaking water into a blender and blend until you

  29. have a smooth paste. Set aside. In a heavy casserole, heat the puree

  30. over moderate heat until fairly hot. Add the cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves; stir for a minute or so, then add the onions, garlic and 7 to 8 minutes

  31. until the onions are soft and golden brown. With a slotted spoon,

  32. remove the lamb from the marinade, add the meat to the casserole, and stir over moderate heat until it browns evenly. Stir in the marinade

  33. and the cold water, then add the almond puree and red pepper and cook

  34. for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Pour in the coconut milk,

  35. bring to a boil, and simmer partially covered for 20 minutes, or until the lamb is tender. To serve, discard the cinnamon and cloves,

  36. mound the lamb attractively on a deep heated platter, and pour the

  37. sauce over it.
