      Yum - this was lovely! I used diced lamb as that's what I had on hand, and cooked on a really low heat. I also browned the lamb before adding the paste and water. Thanks for sharing a great recipe (had missed this in Delicious!)

      This is one of those recipes that I am so pleased to have found - totally gorgeous, creamy curry with a great cut of lamb, we love shanks! I made this for a party that we went to last weekend, and increased the quantities to serve 8 people. I have had requests from ALL the ladies present for the recipe - so thanks for making me so popular Jewelies! Sorry for the lateness in making this - this is for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap! Made exactly as posted with increased quantities - I personally would NOT change a thing!
