Ok so it may not look all that appetising I'm not that good at the photos of food but it tasted good and very healthy here's the recipe .
2 lamb shanks
1 chopped onion
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 inch ginger grated
1 green chilli finely diced
1 teaspoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of honey
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 can of chickpeas ( I used cannellini beans)
Any fruit raisins , dried apricots or apples
Using either a spray of fry light or a teaspoon of light olive oil gently cook the onion , garlic, ginger and chilli add the water with the spices to stop the spices burning.
Transfer all of the ingredients except the fruit to the slow cooker and cook on medium high setting for about 6-8 hours.
I know a lot of slow cookers are different.
About 1 hour before the end you can add any dried fruit or a sweet potato chopped quite small or about 30 minutes before the end core an apple! This tastes great.
Serve with a tablespoon of sourcream or my cheat option a tablespoon of fat free Greek yogurt!
