lamb sirloin, cut into cubes
ground cayenne pepper
slivered almonds, toasted
i doubled the yoghurt, used rice as a side; only 2cups of stock(i used chicken it's all i had) Thickend the stew with a little flour and only used a couple of Teaspoons of curry - nice, will make again:)
The yogurt curdles during the cooking process, the spices are too assertive, and the finished recipe is a liquid clumpy mess. Definitely not recommended.
This recipe is great if made with 3 TEAspoons of curry instead of TABLEspoons.
I also used only 3 TEAspoons of curry, used only 2 cups of stock and served it over rice. Made this with chicken as well and it was very good.
Good recipe, a lot like what I had at an Indian restaurant recently and was trying to duplicate.
Traditional/authentic Indian food is very much spicier than what American tongues are used to. This is a very authentic recipe. If it's too hot for you, curry to taste.
I think it's wonderful!
Needs salt to add flavour
It was OK. The marinade really didn't do much to flavor the meat and the overall stew wasn't very flavorful (though it could have been the type of curry used--I made it at my sister's). Folks seemed a little put off with the rice being IN the stew rather than the stew served over the rice--but this is easily done if desired. I was really hoping this would be great (the recipe looks yummy) but it was just OK.
Although flavorful, 3 tablespoons of curry overwhelms the taste. This recipe is poorly written; it's not detailed enough. Also, adding 8 cups of broth at the end and simmering for only 5 minutes results in a soup, not a stew. I ended up thickening with cornstarch mixture. Recipe never says when to add slivered almonds, or that they should be toasted before adding. I would not make this again.
