I have a confession to make -- I don't like lamb. I'll politely eat it if it's served at a friend's house, but I will never order it in a restaurant and if it's on the menu for a family meal (everyone else adores it) I will always make sure there's another option for me. I made this for the family, and I have to say, I tried it. I mean, come on, I had to! And you know what, it was okay. To tell you the truth, I did add a lot of curry, and some garam masala, and a good dose of Hungarian paprika. The lamb eaters loved it! I liked it, and that's really saying a lot for me! Thanks for giving me the opportunity! Made for ZWT5.
