This recipe was inspired by a recipe by Lorna Sass from the cookbook “Pressure Perfect: Two Hour Taste in Twenty Minutes using your Pressure Cooker” which can be found at Cookstr.com. I don't use a pressure cooker and it only feeds one. The spices are rather mild, so next time I make it I'll probably swap out the spices with those from one of my other Moroccan recipes to jazz it up a bit.
- 1/2 medium Onion (1/2 cup)
- 2 tsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds

- Cut the lamb into small chunks and brown.

- Mash the eggplant and add additional water if the lentils are drying out.
