I used carrots instead of courgettes. I added half a leak chipped in chunks, 1 onion in chunks as no shallots. I didn't put paprika in but I doubled the spice measurements. A tin of plum tomatoes was added too. Lovely. It's the sort of dish i would tweak each time I made it. I served it with roast potatoes.

Excellent recipie and the lamb adds a great touch. I added an eggplant and used about four times as much spice as well as adding oregano which made it a lot nicer as otherwise without the spices it was slightly bland.

Loved this recipe and it went down well with all the family. Following tips from others I did double the amount of meat, quadrupled the spices and added 2spn of dried oregano which worked out perfectly. Served with Jewelled Cous Cous.

One of our favourite meals! Packed full of flavour and so tasty - the children love it as well.

My husband is on a low fat, low carb, low sugar diet and this recipe really fit the bill! Added bonus we all thought it was delicious! I left out the tomatoes and doubled the spices. Thanks GF

Have made this excellent recipe yet again. By now brimming with confidence, I decided to experiment with diced sweet potato added to the mix. Sadly this addition actually diminished and altered the final outcome from the tasty meal it is. So, my advice not add sweet potato to this recipe, stick close to the original and you will not go far wrong.

Very very tasty! Doubled up on all the spices and had to thicken the sauce at the end with some cornflour, also used lean lamb steaks as could not get fillet. Served with rice. Would defiantly recommend.

Oh my goodness! ... I'd rate this higher if I could! Easy, quick, and absolutely delicious. I'd eat it every night if I could. This served 3 of us (2 adults and a 17-y-o) with good substantial portions. Only difference I made was to add a tin of cherry tomatoes instead of fresh ones as I'd run out of fresh, and to add slightly more of each spice. Served with a Couscous recipe (that was listed as part of another meal), which I tweaked and was also really yummy.

Very easy and very tasty. However, I'd say it's for 2 not 4. Next time I'll be doubling everything

Have just made this again. I cant believe it has been 2 yrs since I first made it. I doubled the amount of lean lamb, used diced carrot in place of courgettes and included roast tomato paste. I served it with giant Mediteranian Couscous. It was fantastic, great colours and full of flavour. Just a note though. If there is any stock left in the pan DO NOT THROW IT AWAY. Use as Chefs treat, wonderful.

Can I substitute the lamb for a different meat? Lamb isn't available where I live..

Thanks for your question. We haven't tested this recipe with a different type of meat so can't give a guarantee of results. Lamb does offer a distinctive taste but you could try substituting with beef steak in the absence of lamb. Most cuts of steak only take a few minutes to cook at a high heat so we'd suggest taking the steak out after the first 2 - 3 mins and then adding it in just before serving.
