    Nose's Note:

    A spicy Western Indian lamb dish, from "Indian Regional Cooking," by Sumana Ray. I haven't tried it - I don't usually eat lamb - but I'm posting it because it sounds like the sort of thing my cardamom-loving sister might like. This seems like a lot of oil, so use your judgment. No number of servings was given; I guessed. It says to serve with rice.

      I have primarily only great things to say about this dish! It was really tasty and not at all hard to prepare, considering how good it was. I did double the spices as by the time I got to actually adding the water I thought it needed something extra, so I doubled the pepper, cardamom, ginger and paprika and I'm glad I did. It turned out fantastic. I think the addition of garlic and chilli flakes could also really give it a boost, but that would be down to personal choice. It was ready about an hour or so before we were ready to eat, so the sauce seperated and became a bit oily, but that was absorbed into the basmati rice with no problems and was absolutely lovely. We'll be making this again for sure. Thanks for posting!
