Gosht Korma is a great lamb curry which does not make use of turmeric.  The consistency of the curry can be made to your choice of taste, thin gravy or thick to almost dry and both are delicious.  Adjust the amount of water accordingly. The thin gravy can be served as a main course with steamed rice. The thick/dry version with any Indian bread.
