    DesertChef's Note:

    I have been trying to duplicate a dish from my favorite Indian restaurant in Tucson, AZ. This is not it, close but not yet. It is, however, extremely tasty!

      Made this for dinner last night and it was excellent! I made it exactly as suggested with no substitutions and it was delicious - and easy! Definitely a keeper!

      We really enjoyed this curried lamb dish. It was very easy to make and had really nice flavor. The only modification that I made was to use 2 red peppers instead of one red and one yellow as that is what I had on hand, and I used a hot curry powder versus a sweet one. I also liked that it did not require a lot of prep. We served it over basmati rice. Thanks!

      Very tasty! The tomato sauce overpowered the curry quite a bit but it was still an excellent meal! I served with "Chickpea Curry (Garbanzos)" for a fantastic meal. Thanks DesertChef!
