Method

Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick fry pan over a medium to high heat. Add the lamb, season with salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes, until brown on all sides.

Add in the onion, garlic and spice mix and cook for a further 2 minutes, or until fragrant.

Stir in the stock, tomatoes, honey, cinnamon, carrot, sweet potato, zucchini, apricots and dates. Transfer to a slow cooker, or alternatively a casserole dish, and bake in the oven for 1.5 hours covered, and a further 30 minutes uncovered. You could also cook it on the stove on a gentle simmer for 1.5 hours covered and a further 30 minutes uncovered to thicken the sauce.

Serve with couscous, rice or quinoa and fresh coriander leaves.
