I really enjoyed this! I have to admit, I was a little generous with the sweet potatoe and the curry, but only because one potatoe was more than 1 cup, and I wanted to use the whole potatoe, plus I thought it needed more curry after tasting. I think I only added 1/2 - 1 tsp. curry, but the sweet potatoe was about double. In any case, it was GREAT! I'm not a big lamb lover, and this dish really eliminated that gamey flavor that I dislike.

I'm a RETIRED high school administrator. I love to cook and my husband is a patient taste tester for me (poor baby)! Very lucky he is not a picky eater! We have an awesome son and daughter-in-law but unfortunately they live in Los Angeles so not much physical visiting. Lots of phone calls though! ? I love collecting cookbooks (drives my husband crazy), logo golf balls, and salt & pepper shakers (thanks to getting started with the old recipezaar swaps!). Recipezaar/Food.com has been a fantastic site for me. I have learned a ton at this site and really enjoy all of the forums (I think I'm getting addicted to the Swaps!!) My next big challenge is to learn how to put photographs on of the dishes I am making. Suggestions are definitely invited!!
