This was easy to put together (especially when I prepped ingredients ahead of time) and easy to cook. I think the timing was off a little bit - my onions took a little longer and so did the beef. Yes, I used beef instead of the lamb; the flavor was great. My whole family ate it, even my kids (they said it was like Indian sloppy joes!). Will make again.
This is really tasty. Indian spice flavors and great texture from the sauce. If you dice the potatoes small enough (3/8 inch-ish) they cook in time and blend in perfectly. Next time would add a little more milk and yogurt for more sauce. Note serving with a little yogurt (think raita) on the side is wonderful to up the creaminess and cool the spice heat a bit.
My husband and I loved this dish. Delicious flavors, the spices were well-balanced, and the yogurt and milk gives it a really nice stroganoff-like texture. I agree with the other reviewers -- the potatoes took longer to cook -- so I covered the pot and cooked everything an additional 10-15 minutes. The potatoes were enough carbs for us, so we served it without rice, and it was wonderful. Hearty and filling, a perfect fall/winter meal.
This was OK, but I wouldn't make it again. It is easy and quick, and I know the potato is authentic, but we found the potato on the rice too much. I would think about making it substituting cauliflower for the potato.
great indian flavor. potatoes take longer to cook.
this recipe was exceptional. the yogurt and milk gave the dish a silken quality that was very pleasant. the taste was floral and spicy.
