The amazing restaurant Chai Pani in Asheville, NC serves Indian street food. One of my favorite things to get is their Sloppy Jai. This is an Indian version of a sloppy Joe – made with ground lamb and Indian spices.
I tried to recreate this recipe at home! It’s not exactly the same, but we feel it is a pretty good rendition. I added pickled red onion to add a bit of tang and cut through the richness of the lamb. Adding a little cayenne pepper or replacing the curry powder with Madras curry powder will add a little heat. I serve these on brioche buns, but any buns will be fine. This recipe is also super quick – it can be made in under 30 minutes for a great weeknight meal.
