  • 1 pound ground American lamb
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 medium-to-large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup chives for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large sauté pot, brown the ground lamb in olive oil with onions and garlic over medium heat. Add the spices and continue cooking 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, carrots, and flour. Stir to combine, then add the broth or water. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer to thicken.
  3. Once the mixture has thickened, turn the heat off and set aside. Pour the contents into a baking pan or dish.
  4. Spoon the mashed potatoes over top of the tomato and lamb stew. Place on a rimmed baking tray and bake uncovered 30 to 45 minutes or until the potatoes have taken on a golden color and the stew underneath is bubbling.
  5. Allow to cool 15 minutes before serving. Top with chopped chives.
