      I have made this twice now and my whole family loves it. Because lamb is not widely available where I live I make it with ground turkey instead. It's still great, though I would like to try it with the lamb at some point too. Make some Naan to go with it and you will have a great meal.

      This is really delicious for DH, DD (toddler) and I. I use canola oil to be soy free, yellow potatoes or different types of winter squash since we have been trying to avoid potatoes, lean ground beef with a little extra canola oil instead of lamb, black dried limes for which I remove any visible seeds, instead of Maggi cubes I use Emirati Style Yellow Chicken Stock to be gluten free which works perfect in this dish. I serve this rice with plain Balkan (thick) yogurt or Beet Root and Apple Raita which is absolutely delicious mixed in or Yogurt Salad (Jajeek) which is more traditional but we prefer the beet apple one! Plus a fresh salad such as, Cucumber and Pomegranate Salad. I will make this again & again.
