I thought this tasted fine, but it was mostly rice and kinda dry. I thought with the two kinds of chutney and yogurt that it was me more moist, but that wasn’t the case.

These side dishes came with the Potter’s clay baked lamb, and they were delicious! This was so much food already even after all the previous dishes. I especially loved the basmati rice since it was so flavorful.
