    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    When an inexpensive cut of lamb is given exotic treatment, it becomes interesting enough to serve on special occasions. Cubes of lamb shoulder are simmered with ginger, turmeric and tomatoes, then combined with raisins and almonds. This recipe is especially good for people who like to entertain but also work full-time because it can be made ahead and reheated just before serving.
