    Sarah!'s Note:

    Found this in a curry and chili cookbook. We actually didn't have any yoghurt the first time we made it. It was still great, just a little spicy. Edited the ingredients to change the amount of spinach - hopefully this amount will be more suitable :-)

      Great recipe! I had been inspired by another (much fussier) recipe combining lamb and spinach when I saw this one. I'm glad I did and I served it to some friends that we'd spent a year in India with. Tough crowd and we all gave it two thumbs up. Made it "as is" except that it seemed that 900g spinach was a bit much so used a 1lb bag torn up. I will also make sure that the chili is a hotter one and adding the potatoe sounds like a good idea, depending on what you serve this dish with.

      I really enjoyed this receipe. Next time I will add an extra green chilli to it. We added the potatoe as suggested and accompanied it with a tomato and cucumber lime zest salad and naan bread. Perfect meal, flavours are great
