Top Review by Geema

This was a very aromatic and flavorful curry with the perfect amount of mild heat. Because it was cooked in the crockpot, the lamb melted in our mouth. I admit to being scared about adding the apricots. But, since I've used raisins in curry before, I made the short leap to apricots and was very pleased at the exotic, tart taste. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, but had fun using all those spices that just sit in my drawer unused for months...especially the little cardamom pods. I had fun making this recipe, Chia, and DH and I truly loved eating it. He gives it a 5 *****
