Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Moroccan Style Tomatoes are diced and served in an authentic Moroccan blend of spices, onions and olive oil.
1. Brown the lamb in a dash oil in a hot frying pan. This is best done in two batches. Set aside.
2. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and pan fry until tender, but not brown. Stir in Wattie's Moroccan Style Tomatoes, chicken stock and lamb to the sauce, cover and simmer gently 15-20 minutes. Stir in the coriander just before serving. Season if wished.
3. Heat a dash oil in a large lidded saucepan and cook the onion until just starting to colour. Add basmati rice and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the hot chicken stock, with turmeric or saffron and raisins.
4. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stand 5 minutes withoutlifting the lid. Scatter with toasted almonds.
