Heat oil and butter in a large roasting pan. Sear meat in two portions, turning all around, over high heat. Season each unit with 1 tbsp. curry powder and 1/2 tsp. cardamom and 2 tsp. cinnamon; season meat with salt. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Saute onions and garlic in drippings until translucent and dust with remaining curry. Add kale and saute until tender. Add lamb stock and coconut milk. Fold in meat and cook on low-medium heat with lid on for 50-60 minutes, stirring frequently. Toast almond slivers in a frying pan without fat until golden brown.
