More of us are turning to the kitchen to take advantage of that extra time at home and cook a homemade meal for our family or flatmates. If you’re looking for a warming and hearty dish – lamb tagine is one which is full of sweet and spiced flavour.
A tajine or tagine is a Maghrebi dish which gets its name from the earthenware pot in which it is cooked.
In North Africa, the pot is also called a Maraq/marqa.
The dish below is intended for a tagine, but can also be made in a slow cooker.
