  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large red onion, thickly sliced

Heat remaining oil in the same tagine, add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until soft. Add remaining spices and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Return lamb to tagine with stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 50 minutes or until lamb is tender.
