  • Place the olive oil in a large pot, pressure cooker or real Tagine if you have one
  • Put under a low heat and continue to add the garlic, onions, chopped chilli and herbs.
  • Stir occasionally until brown then add the seasoning, chopped or grated tomatoes and sugar.
  • When you see the tomatoes dissolve and change into a lighter colour you can add the water, vegetables
  • Note: you can also cubed beef or lamb cuts for this tajine, however the cooking time will change and you would need to make sure the meat is fully cooked before adding the vegetables. Using a pressure cooker will help save time. For more details and tips on how to use a pressure cooker watch:
