    Mikekey's Note:

    This is a "special occasion" dish from from the Punjab region of India. The site does no recognize cassia leaves (Indian bay leaf) so I typed regular bay leaves. Cassia leaves and asafoetida can be found in Indian spice shops. You can purchase garam masala or make your own. Several good recipes are posted on the site. If you use very small baby turnips, no need to peel them. Just cut off stems. If you use larger turnips, peel and halve them.

      I had extra turnips and lamb from making Granny Glen's Scotch Broth during ZWT8, so decided to make this recipe too. Have to admit, I liked this recipe better than the one I originally bought the lamb and turnips for. I'm an oddity, in that I really like turnips. This was a new experience for me though, combining these spices with an old standby. Really enjoyed this very different taste for me. Smelled wonderful tonight while it was cooking on my stove. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
