  3. 2. Add in 2 Tbsp. oil to the pan and heat over medium low heat. Fry bay leaf, red chili, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves for a few seconds. Add in onion and fry till richly browned but not burnt, 18 to 20 min, stirring constantly.
  4. 3. Stir in ginger, garlic, green chili, turmeric, cumin, and sugar. Add in meat and water. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, 30 min. Add in the potatoes and simmer, covered, till both meat and potatoes are tender, about 30 more min. Turn heat very low. Blend in yogurt, nuts, and salt and remove from heat. (Prolonged heating will curdle the sauce, detracting from its appearance and texture.) Stir in garam masala. Decorate with onion rings and cilantro.
