Preparation steps

1.

Rinse meat, pat dry and cut into 4 cm cubes (approximately 1 1/2 inch). Peel onions, halve and cut into strips. Peel garlic and chop finely. Drain chickpeas in a colander, rinse off thoroughly and drain well. Heat oil in a tajine pot and brown meat on all sides on high heat. Add onions, garlic, Ras el Hanout, paprika, ginger and cumin powder and saute briefly. Add broth  and simmer, covered, for about 1 hour on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add more water, if necesary. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Add potatoes and chickpeas to the pot and simmer for about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

2.

Place tajine into plates and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves. Serve, as it is done traditionally, with flatbread.
