Traditional South Indian lamb curry combines a number of aromatic spices to create layers of flavor without overwhelming the lamb. This recipe is a simpler version of the dish, using garam masala - a blend of several Indian spices - to simulate the flavors. Marinating your lamb is the secret to this dish, so let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Serve with steamed jasmine rice or naan.
NOTE: We opted to bypass that rice or naan to reduce the carbs and ate it like a stew with a Thai carrot salad on the side (recipe below).

So, the bottom line is if you feel well, don't have much belly, and no digestive issues ... go for it! But, if you're still struggling you might want to look at lectins.
What do you think?
Here's a list of anti-inflammatory foods to eat in abundance!
If you're not a fan of curry, turmeric, apples and onion ... might want to pass on this one. Personally, I love, love, love those flavors so this is one of my go to recipes for a quick dinner. While I am fine with it just the way it is, my DOH, Tom, would prefer some kind of meat ... so shrimp, beef, or chicken would work well in it or next to it.
