      This was quite a nice dish, the lamb turned out beautifully. Maybe a bit too much egg for my personal tastes. I really did not expect this to turn out the way it did, but it was quite interesting. Looks a little like a quiche. Made for My Food Odyssey Albania.

      I made this because it was completely different. I loved it, the rice over the lamb creates a rich flavour. I didn't follow the recipe and left the salt out (but it needed all the salt). Certainly a dish for those that like exotic flavours.
