  • Add the lamb and brown a little, then add turmeric. Give the ingredients a few stirs so the spices release their flavors. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Prick the Persian lemons with a fork and add them to the pot.
  • Add three cups of water to your pot. Cover and cook over medium heat for one hour.
