The delicate spices and jewelled fruitiness prevalent in Arabic food beautifully combine with the more fiery, tangy flavours of Indian influence in this classic tagine. I’ve had some fabulous tagines in the belly-dancing bars of North Africa, but my favourites are the simpler versions created by the cooks, Aicha and Sophia, at my friend’s riad in Marrakesh. If I close my eyes, this dish sends me straight back to their jasmine-scented home in the heart of the medina.
