Delicious and exotic! My family usually eats lamb Greek style with olive oil and lemon, or a more Irish-style so this lamb stew with curry was quite a change! You've opened up a whole new chapter of cooking - I'll not be so frightened of curries ever again ;) Thanks Auntie Mags. Reviewed for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT5.
Can I say 'WOW'? I was amazed to find a recipe using all the leftovers in my 'fridge. I am even more amazed, and beyond delighted, to find it DELICIOUS! I substituted raisins for the currants and added 1 Tbl. of currant jelly to add the flavor. A nice change from the traditional leftover lamb shepherd's pie. Not too sweet, not too spicy. The wine pairing is perfect. Perfect. Perfect. A must try.
