      I have to say, this was not like the Lamb naan I've had before. The bread was too thick (instead of seperating dough into three, I would seperate into at least 6). Also, the lamb seamed to be not the right texture as when I had this at an authentic indian restraunt.

      Excellent recipe. I should have made my naan thinner and added more filling, but still they were delicious served hot. Thank you.

      These turned out beautifully, and so delicious! I couldnt find ground lamb anywhere, so I was forced into using the ground chicken (i really wish I could have used the lamb :( ) Next time, I may add just a bit more curry powder, to our tastes :) The Naans were perfect. Thank you so much for this recipe!
