Lamb & White Bean Curry

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Pierre Dance

No idea where this one came from. All I know it's torn from a magazine, I think it's Sunset but I'm not sure. Sometime, years ago, I wrote "GOOD" on the margin. Well I didn't lie, it is good. The prep time does not include preping the side boys. Invite some friends for supper hand them a nice glass of wine and a knife and everyone have fun slicing and dicing. You will all appreciate the meal more for the sharing.

I subbed chickpeas for white beans and used about half the suggested amount of curry powder (should've used more, though). I made it on the stovetop, cooking on a low flame for about 2 hours. This was pretty yummy, but it definitely needed the "sideboys" to complete it. I used a commercial mango chutney and some currants. Served with rice and pappadums.
