The prunes make a rich and delicious sauce with mouth melting lamb and a kick of chilli and star anise, its almost a tagine

    I love this kind of dish – no hassle, easy, fairly cheap and ready when you get home from work with zero effort.

    Sometimes, it’s good not to have to actually cook, but still get something pretty good to eat.
