That's great guys, thank you so much.

If it's any help to anyone, I've always been put off trying this recipe because lamb is so expensive at the moment, but I've found that Asda do packs of frozen cubed lamb...and beef for just under £3 for about 1/2 kilo, so now I will give it a go!

Don't forget to make sure it's lean, otherwise all your hard work goes right out the window :cool:

I some times have to use the lean if I can't get a hold of extra lean, but I either cut off or cook off all the fat and then drain it. Not a perfect solution, but not everywhere does extra lean, either that or it's expensive...you can't win. :(

Yes, as it's frozen it's really easy to break off any fat, but to be honest there wasn't really very much.

By the way it's cubed lamb rather than minced.

Even better, started to get all the ingredients out & found that I didn't have any turmeric, so ended up with Morrocan lamb instead! LOL
