    Hey, India Travel Forum members.

    My name is Gary, and I will be in India in October. I am very fond of food, especially when I travel abroad, and I have been currently researching about the food in India and read some food related posts on the forum too.

    According to one of my friends who has recently been to India, he said that in India they don't serve lamb and only serve sheep. Sorry for the lack of knowledge, is there a difference between lamb and sheep?

    Hi Gary, nice to meet you and welcome to the forum! Lucky you that you are traveling to India, I am sure you will enjoy it.

    As for the difference between lamb and sheep it's a simple one, lamb it's up to one year of age and from that age on it's considered sheep. Needless to say that lamb meat is more delicious and expensive.
