    Ingredients

    • 1 cup dried chickpeas OR 2 x 400g tins chickpeas
    • 2 tsp sea salt flakes
    • 1 tbsp chilli flakes
    • 2 tsp ground black pepper
    • 1½ tbsp paprika
    • 1½ tbsp ground ginger
    • 1 tbsp turmeric
    • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1 x shoulder of lamb, boned, trimmed and cut into 5cm/2in chunks (about 1.2 kg in total)
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
    • 3 cloves garlic, finely diced or crushed
    • 600ml bottle passata
    • 8-10 dried apricots, cut in half
    • 8 dried figs, sliced thinly
    • 250 ml chicken stock or water
    • 1 tbsp honey
    • ¼ cup coriander leaves, roughly chopped, to serve
    • Pita or Lebanese bread, to serve
    • Green salad to serve

    Method

    Begin the night before OR early in the morning before you head to work: If using dried chickpeas, cover them with cold water and leave for 8 hours or overnight to expand.

    Place the sea salt flakes, chilli flakes, pepper, paprika, ginger, turmeric and cinnamon in a large non-reactive bowl and stir it well to combine. Add the trimmed lamb chunks and toss the meat to thoroughly coat it in the spices. Cover the bowl with clingwrap and leave for 8 hours or overnight in the fridge so the lamb develops a wonderful flavour.

    Set the Kambrook Pressure Express™ to Sauté function and press Start. Add the oil and heat it up then add the onion and garlic. Sauté for five minutes until the onions are soft and starting to colour. Remove them from the pan and set aside.

    Add the marinated lamb and sauté, in two batches, for five to seven minutes until the meat starts to brown on all sides. Do not clean out the pot.

    Set the Kambrook Pressure Express™ to Soups/Curries. Add the drained and rinsed chickpeas, browned lamb and onions, the passata, chopped apricots and figs, stock and honey to the pan and give it all a brief stir to combine.

    Place the lid of the Pressure Express on and lock it into place, making sure the steam valve is locked in place and turned off. Press Start and allow the timer to count down to the end of the cooking period. The entire cycle should take approximately 40 minutes.

    When the cooking cycle ends, the pressure express will ‘beep’. Using oven mitts to protect your hands, turn the steam valve on and allow the pressure to release over the next couple of minutes. DO NOT attempt to open the lid until the steam has completely stopped.

    Once the pressure has released you will be able to unlock the lid. Serve the tagine on a large platter with some coriander leaves scattered over the top, with fresh pita or Lebanese bread and a lovely green salad on the side and let everyone help themselves.
