  • 500g Cubed Lamb Steak
  • 400ml Passatta Sauce
  • 8 Small Dried Apricots
  • 400g Chickpeas
  • Big Bunch of Coriander
  • 1 Red Onion Diced
  • 2 Bell Peppers (any colour) Diced
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic

  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Dried Coriander

  1. Start by searing the lamb in a pan in 1 Tsp of olive oil or coconut oil and season. Whilst the meat is browning, in another pan add the entire contents of the passata and season, along with all the spices (turmeric, cumin, coriander, paprika, cinnamon and ginger) slice the apricots into halves and throw those into the pan as well and turn the heat to high.

  2. Once the lamb has browned, spoon it into the passata bring to the boil, place the lid on the pan and then simmer. Tip the diced onion and bell peppers in to the frying pan and cook for 8/10 mintues until softened, then add the sliced garlic and chillies and cook for another 2/3 minutes and add to the passata. Make sure you give the pan a good stir then chop up roughly a large bunch of coriander throw it in and stir

  3. Cook for about 40/50 minutes or until lamb is soft and tender then add in the drained chickpeas and cook for another 10 minutes. Serve with cous cous and a flat bread.
