I was looking for something to do with the leftover lamb, and this
ended up being a great choice! It was pretty quick and easy for
Indian, but it had a really nice flavor. Not as spicy as restaurnat
vindaloo, but you could probably add a few chopped chilis if you want
it spicier. If you make this with uncooked meat, add it right after
the onions. I served this with some brown rice. It would also be
really good with some flatbread if you wanted to buy or make that. I
didnt' have time.
