The lamb with the fruits and fine spices exudes the mysterious touch of the Orient.

Mix the meat with coriander powder, cinnamon and olive oil, marinate in about 1 hour.

Dried apricots in a measuring cup form. Bring orange-apricot juice to a boil and pour over it, soak for about twenty min.

Set aside some soaked apricots, mash the rest with the liquid.

Heat oil in a frying pan. Add meat in portions, dust with flour, fry, remove, season.

Reduce temperature, dab drippings with kitchen roll, perhaps add a little oil. Sauté onion, garlic and ginger, add pureed apricots and water, bring to a boil. Add meat, half of the almond kernels and saffron. Cover and simmer at low temperature for about 1 1/4 hours.

Mix in the apricots set aside. Garnish with the remaining almond kernels.

Goes well with: Couscous Tip: use beef stew instead of lamb stew. The braising time is extended by fifteen min.

Tip: Cook only with high-quality spices – they are the be-all and end-all in a good dish!
