i scaled back for 2 serves and used 540 grams of precut lamb and it served the 3 of us perfecxtly, it semlt wonderful while cooking but when I went to eat all I could taste was the star anise but the DM and DS thought it was tops so would cut back on the star anise and maybe add some dried apricots to bring out the apricot flavour.served over ricerr.
