5. Add meat mixture to slow cooker.

6. Add raisins, brown sugar, lemon juice, peanut butter, hot chili sauce and a bay leaf.

7. Add apple and set slow cooker on warm or low. If using the slow cooker, check the sauce after a few hours to make sure it is not evaporating too much, if it is, refrigerate and warm up at dinnertime.)

8. Just before dinner…
Remove naan dough from refrigerator. Cut into six equal pieces on a lightly floured surface and press each into an 8 inch round disk, approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick (it looks like a pita bread that’s raw).

9. Set oven to 400 F (200 C).

10. Microwave rice at high for 10 minutes and medium for 10 minutes. Let stand.

11. Place each naan directly on the oven rack. It is done when it looks slightly scorched and puffs up, approximately 7 minutes.

12. Serve with fresh spinach in the center of the plate, circled by rice and pour curried lamb sauce on top. It will wilt the spinach.

13. Garnish with a dallop of yogurt or sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro and nuts. Serve with fresh naan bread.
