Lamb Korma...YUMMO!

Lamb Korma on Naan

I've said it in the past, I am a recipe thief.
I hang out at food blogs, looking for something special to make my own, and have come up with some fabulous finds.
THIS is another winner.
I spotted it yesterday over at Noble Pig (who got it from Food Network), and knew I had all the necessary ingredients at hand.
(Noble Pig left out one little step, so I looked up the recipe at Food Network)
I swapped out the ground chicken for ground lamb (which was an option) that we had bought at our last outing at the Farmer's Market in the fall, and I was raring to go.
The original recipe calls for pita bread, but I knew my homemade Naan would be even better.
I was right.
The Naan takes very little time to put together and is the perfect vehicle for the Korma.
I also added 1 diced halapeno to the paste, and next time will add 2.
We like it spicy, but not over the top wicked.
We did NOT use the chopped cashews, and personally don't think the dish needs them.
But you be the judge for yourself.
I, and the rest of the gang, thought this was outstanding, and it is definitely a dish I will make again and again.

This is Indian food without being too Indian, if you know what I mean.
Spicy, but not too intense.
Something even the kids would like!

I love it when I find a real gem!

Pin It!

I think I will be trying this, the cute little lambs around here do grow up and a few little wethers ( castrated males ) sad to say, are tasty additions to the freezer. So delicious lamb dishes are always welcome. Thanks!
