Lamb and Potato Vindaloo

“I found this recipe on the Idaho Potato Commission website. I've only made it once but it was really yummy. Vindaloo is a type of Indian curry and uses several different spices. If you do not have some of these spices they are easy to find at a neighborhood grocery store. Serve over rice.”
