Nigella's Slutty Moroccan Lamb Stew

I adapted Nigella Lawson's recipe:

and made lamb shanks with onions, a can of Cento chef cut tomatoes, carrots, and red lentils last night, with a lot of turmeric, cinnamon, fenugreek, cardomom, and the juice of two little clementines. It was excellent, the lamb falls off the bone, and easy to make, just remember not to put the lentils in until 25 minutes until you sit down to eat.. You could do it in a crockpot after you brown the lamb. It's a good way to add a healthier less expensive cut of red meat to your diet, and the stew has a lot of Vitamin A.

Mmmmm - looks very hearty. I love lamb shanks - it is always so tender and just falls off the bone. Delicious!

I would really love to travel to Morocco, all my impressions of it are from books and movies and food. Always a big dose of the Other from Bowles and Burroughs and then the funny quirks from Absolutely Fabulous and Doris Day.

Moroccan cities like Marrakesh and Fez are among the most beautiful in the world, even though they are largely in ruins and the poverty appalling. The people are extraodinarily hospitable and generous—and very traditional and religious. The young men can be gorgeous and ready to go; I've had some of my most extraordinary experiences with Moroccan and Tunisian men. But their outlook and culture are very, very different, as are their assumptions. One must be very, very tactful. In general, Morocco is a country I dearly love. But do your homework before you go.
