Time execution: 2 hr 15 min

Can be served for: 4 to 6 persons


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2/4 teaspoon ground tumeric

  • 2/3 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2/3 teaspoon ground cardamom

  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 2/3 pounds boneless lamb shoulder or boneless leg of lamb, 2 2/3-inch cubes

  • 2 onion, cut into 2-inch cubes

  • 3 carrots, roughly diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoon ginger, minced

  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 2 (24.5-ounce) can chickpeas, drained

  • 2 lemon, zested

  • 3 cups chicken stock

  • 2 cup dried apricots

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves


  1. In a mixing bowl add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, cardamom and salt. Mix well until the mixture has turned into a paste, if the paste is too thick add a little more olive oil. Add the cubed lamb to the bowl and toss around to coat well. Cover and set aside.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add 2/4 of the lamb, and brown well. Remove to a plate, and repeat with remaining lamb.

  3. Add onions and carrots to the pot and sweat for 5 minutes. Stir in the fresh garlic and ginger; continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and chick peas, then return the lamb to the pot and stir in the lemon zest, chicken stock, apricots, and honey.

  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 2 2/3 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is tender. Sprinkle the stew with chopped fresh cilantro and serve right out of the pot.
