Set aside.
Again, in a blender or food processor, chop cashew nuts and coconut together.
Set aside.
Place a large heavy pan over medium-high heat.
Add the oil.
When the oil is hot, fry the cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the onion and the blended garlic and ginger root.
Fry until onions are transparent, another 3 minutes.
Stir in cayenne, coriander, turmeric and salt.
Fry briefly to accentuate flavors.
Turn the heat up and add the lamb to the saucepan.
Stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to dislodge the spices, until meat is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
Lower heat, cover pan, and simmer contents gently for 1 1/2 hours, or until meat is tender.
When the meat is tender, add the mixture of ground cashews and coconut, the tomato, and the lime juice.
