Method:
Preheat oven at 180C.
Make a paste with 2Tbsp olive oil, lemon rind, lemon juice and Tajine Mix.  Marinade the lamb with the paste and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  The longer you can let the meat marinade, the better!
Brown onions in a little olive oil, add the diced lamb and brown. Place the meat in your Tajine, add chicken stock and chopped tomatoes. Cook in the oven for 1 hour. 
Remove and add the raisins and apricots. Cook in the oven for another hour.                                                
Just before serving, cook the Israeli Couscous in plenty of boiling water with 1 cube of chicken stock for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Drain, stir the fresh coriander and a little olive oil through the couscous.
To Serve: Place pistachio nuts in a small dish, Greek style yoghurt in a small bowl, the meat dish in the tajine on the table.  The idea is for everyone to dish up a little of everything!
