Ingredients used

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.
