I used frozen artichokes, which are lest costly than the fresh ones. Plus it is quicker to use the frozen. I used frozen peas as well.
2 lbs of lamb
2 onions, chopped or sliced thin
2 garlic cloves, minced
2-3 tbs olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ginger
3 tbs Italian parsley and cilantro, chopped fine
salt\pepper to taste
1 lb of artichiokes
2 cups of peas
1 tbs ghee or clarified butter, optional
Place the tagine on medium heat. Add the oil and when hot add the lamb, onions, parsley, cilantro and spices. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Then add enough water to cover the meat. Cover and simmer until the meat is tender. For about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. If the sauce starts to get too thick add a bit more water, but not so much that the sauce is thin. Once the meat is cut easily with a fork add the peas and then artichokes on top. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender. Maybe 10-15 minutes more. Serve with crispy bread. Enjoy!
