There are so many variations of this Greek comfort dish that I get quite giddy! But this is mine and I like to include more vegetables and more cinnamon than usual; if it is not for you, then halve the quantity.


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 500 g lean minced lamb
  • 2 large oni


  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the minced lamb, onions and oregano. Cook for 5 minutes until the meat is brown and crumbly, and the onions have softened. Now add the garlic and cook for a further minute, then stir in the cinnamon and season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the chopped tomatoes or passata, the tomato purée and red wine. Cover and simmer for 20 m
