The earthy smell of saffron evokes the windy souks, sweet mint teas, colourful spice markets and beautiful mosques that inspired me to make this wonderful Persian stew. The saffron and cinnamon are all you need to provide a real depth of flavour and the honey and apricots lend just the right amount of sweetness, which works perfectly with the lamb. This stew is rich but light and full of flavour from such amazing spices.
