    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Since my family likes spicy I always add in about 2 teaspoons dried red pepper flakes along with the onions (2 teaspoons will be VERY HOT!) but that is optional, If you like food with tons of flavors, this is one you will have to try, it is really delicious! Serve this with regular or basmati rice or couscous. You can double the recipe but only increase the fresh ginger by 1 teaspoon.

      We loved this. I found Lamb on sale for only $1.79 a lb at my local store or I never would have been able to try this delicious dish lol. It is sooo full of flavor yet not too spicy for those with a more tender palate (I added some of my African Hot Sauce to my portion to heat it up). the Apricots are a nice change from the usual Raisins in Curry. Thanks for sharing a great recipe Kittencal!
