Traditional versions of this dish can take quite a long time to prepare but I've adapted this version so you can whip it up after work. Adjust the spices to your taste.

this is very good and cooks up quicker than most lamb dishes. i added some black mustard seeds and garam masala, and i doubled the recipe which made an enjoyable dinner.
