      Thanks Hmrjmr1 for visiting. Here in India there is a daily presence of goat meat in the menus at the restaurants and at homes. Go for this recipe as soon as you get the oppurtunity. Must be a hard life for you in Iraq.

      This recipe has been passed on to the newer generations from the previous generation and is a time-tested recipe. Also it is easy to make. Hope you will enjoy it.

      Kulsum - at the Dining Facilities in Iraq Thursdays was goat night for the Contract workers, If you were friends with the DFAC Supervisor he would let you get some instead of the normal meal served to the troops. (Goat is not on the Army 21 day Menu) I loved it. This sounds really good. Thanks for posting it.
