    My DH wanted to marry Madhur Jaffery after I first made this from her Indian cookery book. He settled for me once I'd perfected this recipe. Fantastic served with a lemon rice.

      Truly terrible recipe. Long and painful process to cook. And you end up with lamb chunks in a brown completely tasteless sauce. Totally unlike a dopiaza you get in Hyderabad.
