    Fairy Nuff's Note:

    A wonderfully tender lamb dish adapted from "A Taste of Asia" cookbook. A great curry that has become a favourite in our household. Korma's are not "saucy" curries. Prep time doesn't include 1 hour marinating.

      Yum! I grated the onions and used ground spices and it came up a treat! I did need to add an extra teaspoon of salt to taste. After adding the yoghurt I put this in the pressure cooker for 15 min and it came out so tender. Will be making this again - Thanks!
