  Spring lamb 1 Pound, cubed (500 Gram)
  Ginger puree 1 Teaspoon (Pulp)

  Turmeric 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Corn oil 4 Tablespoon
  Onions 2 , sliced

1. Place the lamb in a bowl and mix with the ginger, garlic, turmeric, salt and chilli powder.

Add the doodi and half of the fenugreek and stir-fry for 3 minutes then pour in the water. Lower the heat and cook, covered with a lid, for 20-25 minutes or until the water has been fully absorbed and the meat is cooked.
3. Add the remaining fenugreek, the tomatoes, green pepper, lemon juice and fresh coriander and stir-fry for 7-10 minutes, or until oil begins to appear at the sides of the pan.
4. Garnish with more fresh coriander, if wished, and serve at once.

Hi Staci, Doodi or Lauki is nothing but the local indian name for Bottle Guard. This is a very traditional Indian preparation of lamb cooked with fenugreek (methi) and doodi (bottle guard). Hope your question is answered.
