Rose Harissa Lamb Tagine

I’m a huge fan of a Tagine particularly at this time of year. This recipe can be thrown together in no time at all and left to slowly blip away in the oven. This is a great introduction to spice for young children as there is a lovely sweetness that balances the heat, which kids seem to enjoy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
