An aromatic main dish with lamb and spices.


  1. Mix cayenne pepper, black pepper, red paprika, ginger, turmeric and cinnamon in a small bowl.

  3. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of Argan oil in a large frying pan.

  8. Add the rest of tomato juice, chopped tomatoes, chopped apricots, dates, raisins, almond flakes and honey.

  9. Cook until boiling, then cover with a lid.

  10. Simmer gently for two hours until the meat is completely tender.
