Sort By :
"Exceptional! Substituted tomato paste for the tomato sauce (w/added water). Very, very good. Will make this again! Husband loved it! It's spicy....but not too hot."
"My family doesn't care for lamb, so I tried this with beef, and increased the curry powder and cayenne a little. Very good, and a nice change from the usual stew."
"This was very tasty. Maybe a little too creamy personally, but very similar to what you get at any good Indian restaurant. I only left out the coriander as I didn't have it on hand so I added a little more cumin, since I like the taste. But very good recipe."
"i love love LOVE this stew! I make it every year for Halloween. I always double the spice mixture tho. I love spice so thats just my progitave. its a must make!"
"Excellent. Spicy and creamy. I added green pepper and celery as I had less than the required amount of lamb."
