How to make Moroccan Lamb Tagine

  2. Preheat the oven to 150 degree celsius.
  3. Take a large pan and heat 1 tbsp olive oil in it. Put in the onion, remaining spice mixture and cook for 8-10 minutes or so. Once the onions are soft, add the garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. In a separate pan, heat the left over oil and add the meat pieces. Saute and cook till the meat becomes browned from all sides, then add this meat into the large pan.
  5. Next pour in the tomato juice, tomatoes, apricots, dates, raisins or sultanas, flaked almonds, saffron, lamb stock and honey all together into the large pan.
  6. Bring this mixture to a boil then cover with a lid and cook in the oven for 2-2 and ½ hours or till the meat is tender.
  7. Once cooked, place this dish on a tangine and sprinkle the chopped coriander on top and serve warm.
