Method

 
Heat olive oil in a pan and cook onion over medium heat to lightly brown.
Add garlic, ginger and spices, and cook for a minute or two, until fragrant.
Add lamb and toss to coat with spices.
Add water and lemon juice and cook for a minute.
Add yoghurt and cook over a low heat for five minutes.
The yoghurt will curdle if the heat is too intense.
Don't panic if this happens, it will look a little odd but taste just fine.
Add herbs, adjust seasoning and serve with hot pita bread, chopped tomatoes, onion and cucumber and a few fresh leaves.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
