Now add the lamb and ginger. Stir and fry for about 5 min, breaking up the chunks of meat as you do. Add 1 cup water, the salt, and cayenne. Stir and bring to simmer. Cover, turn heat to low, and simmer gently 30-40 minutes or until meat is tender. Add the mint, cilantro, lemon juice, and garam masala. Stir and cook uncovered on low heat for another 5 min, stir now and then. Spoon out extra fat before serving.
