Laid-back lamb tagine
A great recipe to cook in a big batch and have leftovers for the next day.

1kg shoulder of lamb, trimmed and diced into 3cm pieces
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp ground almonds
2 tbsp honey
A handful of sultanas
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic cloves, crushed
A thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
A handful of coriander leaves
A handful of flaked almonds
Couscous, to serve

Place the lamb, spices, almonds, honey, sultanas and tomatoes in a large lidded casserole dish. Mix well and set aside.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the onions, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes, until softened. Add the cooked onions to the lamb mixture in the casserole and stir well. Cover the casserole and place in the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the lamb is tender.

Ladle the cooked tagine into warmed serving bowls. Sprinkle over the coriander and almonds. Serve with couscous.
