Heat oil in a saucepan and sauté onion and garlic.  Add the meat and keep stirring until it changes colour.

While the lamb is simmering, make dumplings.  Rub feta cheese into the flour, add morogo, salt and water to form a dough.

Add patty pans into the saucepan, spoon the dough on top of the meat and vegetables.

Sprinkle the seeds on top of the dumplings and add some parsley.  Cover the lid and let simmer for 3 minutes.

Dilute tomato paste with a bit of water and add to the pan.

Sprinkle with pepper and let simmer for 2 minutes or until ready.
