    I really liked this. I used the coriander, cumin, black pepper, curry powder, turmeric, and some toasted cumin seeds. There are a lot of lentils, so don't skimp on the spices. - 9/25/08

    Very Good
    This was new to me, I never made many lamb meals. - 12/24/18

    Recipe needs major tweaking for my taste. Less spice, fewer lentils and more liquid. Cooked according to directions but lentils were still too 'al dente'. Probably won't waste good lamb on this recipe again. - 1/31/10

    This was great - we loved it and will make again regularly. Goat would be fine as a replacement for lamb. Chicken won't work, it doesn't have as much flavour and it will taste bland. Beware - this makes a VERY large quantity. We did a double batch and could have fed 30 people easily. - 11/8/09

    Can you use goat meat for this? I had goat last year in the Dominican and it was delicious. - 1/22/09
