Heat the oil over a medium heat. Slowly caramelize the onions until softened and golden in color. Add the seeds and curry leaves and cook until fragrant, About 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute before adding tomato sauce and yoghurt. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper before blending with a hand blender until smooth. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 5 minutes.

For the quick pickle:
Combine the red wine vinegar and maple syrup adding just enough to have a perfect balance between sweet and tang. Add the thinly sliced cucumber, red onion and chili allowing it to sit in the pickle taking on the flavor.
Heat the ghee over a high heat. Season the lamb with salt and freshly ground black pepper taste. Add the lamb to the pan with the curry leaves, garlic and the split chillis. Cook for about 2 minutes before turning over.
Begin spooning the ghee over the lamb now that the flavor of the curry leaves and garlic has permeated into the lamb and ghee. Cook for another 3 minutes then set aside to rest.
Add the curry sauce to the bottom of the bowl before spooning in some of the rice. Slice the lamb steaks, or plate the whole lamb chops.
Add the lightly picked cucumber and serve. Garnish with extra coriander and thinly sliced spring onion.
