It was really good. I added a little garlic powder and onion powder to enhance the flavor to my liking. My family enjoyed it as well. Thanks

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.

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.

Excellent. Spicy and creamy. I added green pepper and celery as I had less than the required amount of lamb.

This stew is EXCELLENT! My husband is addicted, and hunts for sales on lamb now with this dish in mind when we're shopping ;). I have 1) added additional liquids in the form of tomato sauce or pureed canned tomatoes, and b) added substantially more cayenne because we're spice fans. Can't recommend this enough!
