1. Prepare the coconut milk. Then, in a food processor, process together the onion, ginger, garlic, cilantro, curry leaves, and green chili peppers until minced. Add the tomato, 1 teaspoon garam masala, cayenne pepper, turmeric, salt, and asafoetida, and process again to make a smooth paste.
2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick wok or saucepan over medium-high heat and cook the red chili peppers, cardamom pods, and black peppercorns, if using, about 1 minute. Add the cumin and mustard seeds they should splatter upon contact with the hot oil, so lower the heat and cover the pan until the splattering subsides.
3. Add the lamb and cook, turning, until browned, about 15 minutes. Add the processed paste and continue to cook, over moderately heat for the first 3 to 5 minutes and then over medium-low heat until the pieces are well-browned and traces of oil are visible on the sides of the pan, about 15 minutes.
4. Add the water, cover the pan, and simmer until the lamb is tender and the sauce is as thick or thin as you desire, 30 seconds to 40 minutes. When the lamb is tender, add the coconut milk and simmer about 5 minutes to blend the flavors. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with the cilantro and garam masala, and serve.
