Try this recipe for a little Middle Eastern magic with a mouth-watering dish of melting lamb in a piquant, fruity sauce served with fresh made flatbread.
For the lamb tagine:
Coat the lamb in half the ground spices and leave overnight.
Brown the lamb in half the oil in a heavy based, ovenproof saucepan over a high heat. Add the remaining spices, crushed garlic and grated onion. Allow the onion to soften without browning.
Add the apricots and their soaking water, the almonds, raisins/sultanas, honey, saffron, tomato juice, lamb stock and tomatoes.
Bring to the boil, then place in the oven for 2.5 to 3 hours at 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.
Take out of the oven, remove meat and then reduce sauce over a high heat until thickened.
Fry the lemon rind in the remaining olive oil for a few minutes, then fold in the chopped coriander. Pour the reduced sauce over the lamb and garnish with the lemon and coriander.
For the flatbread:
Mix the flour, olive oil and salt in a medium bowl. Add just enough water to help the ingredients bind. The bread dough should not be too sticky. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead until soft and elastic. Cut the dough into four.
Take a rolling pin and roll dough until flat and the size of the small frying pan. Place the dough discs into frying pan and fry for 2 minutes either side or until crispy.
