  • In a small bowl, combine garam masala, sugar, salt, and pepper. Rub half the mixture into lamb shanks; reserve remaining mixture.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Working with 2 lamb shanks at a time, cook until browned all over, about 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining lamb.
  • In a 4 to 7 quart slow cooker, stir together tomatoes, chutney, garlic, water, and remaining spice mixture. Add lamb and spoon some tomato mixture over. Cover and cook over low for 6 hours or until lamb is tender. Transfer lamb to a platter, skim and discard any fat from surface of sauce, taste and adjust salt if necessary. Spoon sauce over lamb and serve.
