I use shredded carrots and half the recipe. I use only a teaspon of sugar since I don't think it's necessary and I try to limit my sugar intake. That said, I love this recipe and enjoy making it!
This was SO fabulous! Sadly, I didn't have fresh cilantro, so I used dried. I doubled the garlic (2 cloves) since I am a garlic fanatic. In the yogurt sauce, I thought it was bland (again-no fresh cilantro) so I added 1/2 tsp. of yellow curry powder. This was so good, I am going to modify it into a burger recipe and serve it as grilled lamb burgers. Fabulous, Martha!
These look so good - but I don't like lamb. Has anyone tried making these with ground beef or ground turkey? Similar cooking time?
