Tajine of Lamb I (M, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 6

2-1/2 lbs. lamb cut in pieces
1 onion chopped small
1 cup water
3 tbsp. oil (approximate)
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups pitted prunes
1 cup whole blanched almonds

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large pan and sauté onion until golden. Add lamb and brown. Add water and turmeric.

Bring to a boil then simmer on low for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Make sure there is still a little moisture with the meat so it is neither watery nor dry. Add sugar, cinnamon, and prunes for 20 minutes or until you have a nice sauce. Add almonds and cook for another 10 minutes.
