Marinate the lamb in a large bowl with the curry powder, yoghurt and salt, and set aside for 2 hours.
Heat the mustard oil in a large pot until smoke point. Allow to cool down a little. Heat again and add the mustard seeds, let them pop for a few seconds
and then add the curry leaves and onions. Saute the onions for a few minutes till light golden in color and add the salt, green chili, garlic and ginger paste. Keep stirring to prevent the masala from catching the bottom of the pan. Saute for 2-3 minutes till you get the aroma of toasted spice,

Cover and simmer for 1 hour on slow fire until the masala has thickened and the lamb is tender. Keep stirring occasionally. Garnish with coriander leaves.
