Mix the lamb mince with 1 grated brown onion, half of the chopped parsley, salt, pepper, 1 Tbs of the paprika and the same for ground cumin. Mix well until smooth then roll into small balls and fridge until firm. 1 hour or so…
Grate 5 good sized tomatoes and discard the skin. add the other grated onion and fry in olive oil until they begin to melt a bit. Add the garlic and the other half of the parsley then cook a few minutes. Add the remaining spices and maybe 2 cups of water and cook covered stirring occasionally until thickened and yummy. Add the balls and cover for about 20 minutes.
Crack eggs on top then cover until poached

My pleasure I am glad you enjoyed it !
On the weekend I made it and I was out of parsley so I used Mint and Coriander in the meat and then coriander in the sauce and it was delicious =D
oh dear! now I just have to get my hands on a tagine! I so want to give this a go … stay tuned! absolutely love the idea of paoching the eggs in the spices … so many just add boiled eggs, but this marries the flavours … inspired!
You can make it in a good heavy based pot with a lid we just have the tagine because it’d be strange for a Moroccan household not to own one hahaha I hope that you love it
lol I am a back to basics, do it real, make it special kinda girl …. It’s my birthday today … I might put it on my birthday list *grin*
I have a question. This recipe sounds delicious and I like the idea of the coriander instead of parsley. But…how do you grate tomato? I’m envisaging a very messy attempt on my behalf?
