DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large pot and then add the garlic, ginger, onion and chilli.
  • Cook for a few minutes to soften the onion and then add the fennel, turmeric and cardamom.
  • Next add the lamb shanks coating well with spice mixture and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Now add the honey, tomato paste, canned tomatoes and water and bring to the boil and lower to a simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender (I prefer nearly falling of the bone).
  • Alternatively you could put it in a 160c fan forced or 180C non-fan forced oven for the 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  • Add the yoghurt and apricots and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  • Stir through the coriander leaves just before serving.
  • Recommend serving with basmati rice and spicy chutney.
