Mrouzia (Moroccan salty-sweet tajine)Mrouzia

Moroccan salty-sweet tajine

Wash, drain and pat-dry lamb. In a bowl, combine Ras el Hanout, ginger, salt and black pepper to taste, turmeric and crumbled saffron threads; rub mixture evenly over lamb. Place in a bowl; cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Add raisins to a bowl; cover with water and set aside. Place lamb in a large cooking pot; add onions, garlic, cinnamon sticks and Smen. Cover and cook over medium heat for about fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally. Add three cups of water; simmer for about two hours or until lamb is tender. Drain raisins and add to cooking pot. Stir in honey and ground cinnamon; add blanched almonds. Add more water if necessary to cover the raisins. Simmer for about twenty to thirty minutes or until raisins are plump and the stew has a thick consistency. Remove and discard cinnamon sticks. Arrange lamb on a serving dish; place raisins and almonds on top. Pour remaining cooking sauce over the top and serve.
