  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

  3. Scoop the lamb out onto a plate, then add the onion and carrots and cook for 2-3 mins until golden.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min more.
  5. Stir in the spices and tomatoes, and season.
  6. Tip the lamb back in with the chickpeas and apricots.
  7. Pour over the stock, stir and bring to a simmer.
  8. Cover the dish and place in the oven for 1 hr.
  9. If the lamb is still a little tough, give it 20 mins more until tender.
  10. When ready, leave it to rest so it’s not piping hot, then serve scattered with pomegranate and herbs, with couscous or rice alongside.
