This is adapted from a Gulf News cookery book that is the most used book in my collection due to the simplicity and flavour of the recipes it contains.

This inspired me due to the novelty of pasta yoghurt and spice. However, I have now started tweaking it and due to my appetite for strong flavors I have doubled the G/Masala and cumin, added several chillies, colored with turmuric and top off with a wonderful bought-in yoghurt and mint sauce. This really works but maybe I lost that middle eastern touch somewhere? Next i´m going to add the garlic to the meat that is no longer in my sauce and see where we get to!!
