I found these two tagine recipes and wanted to give them a try
- 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- 2teaspoons ground cumin
- 2teaspoons ground coriander
- 1teaspoon salt
- 1teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄2teaspoon cayenne
- 1 teaspoon saffron
- 1⁄2teaspoon ground cardamom
- 2tablespoons lemon juice
- 2tablespoons olive oil
- 1kg chicken legs
- 1cup chicken stock
- 1⁄2cup whole dates
- 1/2 cup dried apricots
However, I did not have the local tagine therefore used an oven.
The best thing about a tagine one can use any ingredients and vegetables at hand that suit their taste.
Dice irish potatoes , red onions, carrots, lemon etc and add chicken stock. You can add all the spices at this point or use them to marinate the chicken for hours before frying it.
Slightly brown the chicken and add white onions for flavour
Cover and set in oven for 40 mins or more. Add dried apricots, dates or olives or almonds and ghee which is clarified butter
Set in the oven for another 20 minutes or until ready.
Serve with couscous or eat as it is.
