    A tagine is a Moroccan casserole dish, if you don't have one a normal casserole dish works just as well.

      Made for the Great Tagine Treasure Hunt!!! I really enjoyed this tagine. I made no alterations to the ingredients BUT after reading the previous comments, I decided to cook this in a traditional tagine in the traditional way. This means that I didn't pre-boil the potatoes but instead I put everything in the tagine together (except coriander /cilantro & parsely) I cooked it on a medium heat for around 1hour - thsi way the flavours permeated the potatoes instead of just being in the sauce. This made the tagine really delicious & I will be making it again for definite. Thanks PinkCherryBlossom for this lovely recipe!

      Very tasty. I could have eaten this on it's own. I cooked mine in a heavy saucepan since I don't have a tagine and tried to keep the heat as low as possible. I don't know if it was the heat or the floury potatoes I used but I had to add a bit of extra stock to be able to heat the potatoes through again (I had gone to the shops for raisins between step 1 and 2!) It did mean, however, that I had a lot of lovely thick sauce. Excellent!
