500g Lamb Mince
2 tbsp Ras El Hanout ***
½ tsp Hot Chilli Powder – or extra if you like it spicy!
1 small bunch of Coriander – Stems finely chopped and leaves reserved
1 Lemon – Zested and Juice reserved
400g tin of Chopped Tomatoes
Olive oil for greasing
300g Self Raising Flour
300ml Greek Yoghurt
2 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
Extra flour for dusting
Chickpea & Herb Salad
400g tin of Chickpeas
1 small bunch of Mint
1 small Red Onion
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Heat a large non-stick fry pan over a medium/high heat. Add the lamb mince to the dry pan *** and cook, stirring occasionally for 7-10 minutes until browned and starting to caramelize.
Add the Ras El Hanout, Chilli, Salt, Coriander stems and Lemon Zest, and stir to combine. Cook for a further minute or two until the spices become roasted and fragrant and then add the chopped tomatoes. Cook stirring for a further 5 minutes until the sauce is completely dry. Turn off the heat and leave to cool to room temperature.
To make the bread dough – Place all the dough ingredients into a large bowl and using your hands bring it together until a soft dough has formed. Turn out onto a floured bench and knead lightly for a couple of minutes.
Pre-heat your fan-forced oven to 200°c and lightly grease a non-stick baking tray with olive oil.
Gently roll your dough out into a 1cm thin rectangle and transfer to the tray. Carefully distribute your lamb mixture over the top of the dough and then bake for 12-15 minutes until the bread is cooked through and the lamb is just starting to caramelize.
To make the salad – Drain and completely rinse the tinned chickpeas. Place into a bowl with the finely sliced red onion, picked mint leaves and reserved coriander leaves. Add the reserved lemon juice and olive oil. Season well and toss to combine.

*** Ras El Hanout is a common spice blend used in Moroccan cooking. It translates to ‘Head of the Shop’ and generally refers to the best ingredients a spice merchant has to offer. It is readily available in all good supermarkets and gourmet grocers.
*** Generally Lamb mince has a higher fat content and does not need extra oil added to the frypan.
