This is an Eastern Turkish recipe I found from a Turkish housewives site (forget the name of it now)…
1 tbsp margarine (or oil) for frying
300g diced lamb
2 cinnamon sticks
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
1 cup water
3 dried apricots
1 tsp grated ginger
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
½ an onion (finely chopped)
½ tbsp flour
Marinade the lamb with all the spices ın room temperature for 30 minutes.
In a separate bowl, place the apricots and add enough boiling water to just cover them.
Put margarine/oil in a pan, heat then brown off the lamb.
Add the onion and garlic and stir until browned.
Add the flour and fry for 1-2 minutes. Now add the ginger.
Add water to the same level of lamb (not too much) then dice and add the apricots. Place the cinnamon sticks in the pan.
Simmer for 1 hour (check water while cooking and stir as necessary. Add more boiled water if too thick.
Serve along with rice.
