I have been trying to duplicate a dish from my favorite Indian restaurant in Tucson, AZ. This is not it, close but not yet. It is, however, extremely tasty!

  • Salt and pepper the lamb, then mix and form into little balls.

    Made this for dinner last night and it was excellent! I made it exactly as suggested with no substitutions and it was delicious - and easy! Definitely a keeper!

    We really enjoyed this curried lamb dish. It was very easy to make and had really nice flavor. The only modification that I made was to use 2 red peppers instead of one red and one yellow as that is what I had on hand, and I used a hot curry powder versus a sweet one. I also liked that it did not require a lot of prep. We served it over basmati rice. Thanks!

    Very tasty! The tomato sauce overpowered the curry quite a bit but it was still an excellent meal! I served with "recipe#25360" for a fantastic meal. Thanks DesertChef!

    Delicious! Very flavorful and nicely-spicy, not too spicy at all. Served over rice. Also good the next day for leftovers.
