I only had thai 7 spice powder so used that with a bit of ground coriander and cumin mixed in. On the George Foreman with a bunch of asparagus and oh my days! It feels like it shouldn't have worked but it really, really did. Having it again for dinner tomorrow. YUM.

This was delicious! Even my husband, who usually won't touch anything curried, really loved it. When I do it, I brown the lamb first, then pile the cheese mix onto only one side and then pop into the oven.
