Very yummy. I browned the meat instead of boiling, and cooked the lot on top of the stove instead of oven baking. Served with Naan bread, Dhal, lentils and steamed rice- visitors very impressed and will definitely cook again. - 05 May 2012


Loved it. Packed with good food, tasty and fun to make but time consuming. A family favourite that I will definitely do again. - 05 Feb 2012


Love this recipe. Also cooked it over slow heat on top of the stove after browning the meat. Saves a lot of time. - 15 Sep 2015
