Very nice. I made it with stewing lamb in the slow cooker. Found the flavours a bit muddy, so added some fresh coriander to try and clear things up. Served over cous cous. A yummy meal, thanks for sharing this :)

Excellent! Indeed an easy recipe and a crowd pleaser :) Couple of possible variations: - use perl onions instead of chopped. Brown them slightly before garlic and ginger. Add browned lamb after that. - A handfull or two of golden raisins could also add some sweetness. - I also tried blood oranges, nice kick..

Lovely flavours and quick to make. I did add just one whole clove to give it an extra bite.
