Offal

I bought a lamb kidney at Adams because it was 28 cents.

Now what do I do with it.

(Dana suggested I throw it at someone.)

I am reading that lamb kidney's best applications are stew and chili, which means the meat is not good on its own (according to a recipe I am about to link, the "extreme" and "arresting" pungency of lamb meat drowns out the urine smell) and must be made good with other foods.

This recipe looks promising (and I would have to adapt it), but am I reading this correctly:

Ingredients

1/2 of lamb kidneys, about two or three
1 tablespoon rice wine
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper or chili pepper flakes
1/2 curry powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 cup of oil, for passing through

Is she implying that lambs have approximately four–six kidneys
Does she mean two or three halves of all kidneys from one lamb, i.e. one kidney; all said, two or three kidneys
Does she want me to halve kidneys until I have two or three half-kidneys
