You can also add half a package of frozen spinach or 4 cups of fresh chopped spinach for an added twist! Reply to comment above - sorry you found the recipe too hot but the recipe only calls for 1 tsp of chilli powder/cayenne.

Sadly I didn't enjoy it, the spices were overpowering

Easy, Excellent flavor, this was cooked stovetop, meat was tender and taste was very authentic.

Very easy to make and not too time consuming, which is nice. The flavour was pretty nice. I added some potato chunks and it worked well - just a couple of potatoes cut up into small cubes. Ate it with basmati rice and naan bread. Yum!

I give this recipe only 4 stars because it is EXTREMELY spicy. I cut the Cayenne pepper back to 1.5 tsp. and added some plain yogurt at the end and it was still VERY spicy. I realize heat is a personal preference, but this just seemed a bit much. It was also quite thick - I ended up adding water to thin out the sauce so I could simmer without scorching it. Aside from that this was super! My husband declared it "really, REALLY yummy." When we make it again, we will probably cut the cayenne back to 1 tsp. We found that roasted vegetables (carrots, broccoli, onions and potatoes seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin and just a touch of cayenne) went with this very well.

Great recipe! The lamb was VERY tender and the spices were a perfect blend. I used Aleppo chili pepper (actually I had my wife add the chili pepper--according to her I make everything too HOT--she used two large pinches and the heat was spot on.) I added chopped cabbage leaves from the garden (but would use kale, spinach, or some such green). I did add about 1/4-1/2 cup of water after adding the leaves and then let it all simmer for about an hour. The last 5-10 minutes the lid was off to allow it to thicken slightly. This would be great served over rice, but because we're both doing the Whole30, no rice for us!

Very good and simple lamb curry.

I enjoyed flavor of spices in this curry. I never cooked using garam masala seasoning, and this was a great dish. Ever since I started preparing this recipe, I have been cooking it more often. Thank you!!
