Use a large heavy skillet.

Serves: 4.
Preparation time : 2.5 hours.


3 tablespoons peanut oil,
1 large onion,
1 kilogram lamb stew,
100 grams smooth peanut butter,
3.5 deciliter cold water,
136 grams tomato paste,
5 deciliter hot water,
4 large carrots,
3 sprigs fresh thyme,
2 bay leaves,
sea salt,
fresh ground 4-season pepper.

Cheesecloth and kitchen string or a tea egg.


Peel the carrots with a vegetable peeler and cut them in half lengthwise.
Cut them into pieces of 3 to 4 centimeters.

Chop the onion finely.
Cut the lamb into pieces of about 4 centimeters.
Fill a tea egg with the thyme and bay leaves.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a heavy skillet and fry the onion on medium heat.

Then add 1 tablespoon peanut oil and the pieces of meat.
Fry the meat on all sides until it is lightly browned.

Dilute the tomato paste with hot water.
Add this liquid and stir until everything is evenly blended.

Season to taste with sea salt and 4-season pepper.
