    Directions

    1. Saute the onion in the olive oil until soft and transparent. Stir the spices into the oil to release the flavors. Cook for a minute or two.
    2. Raise the heat and add the lamb, sprinkling with salt. Saute until browned on all sides.
    3. Whirl the fresh tomatoes in a food processor or blender until nearly smooth, and add to the meat. Stir in the water, yogurt, garlic and serrano pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Cover and simmer about 2 hours until the meat is tender. The tomato sauce will reduce somewhat.
    4. After cooking 2 hours, measure the liquid. The amount of rice that needs to be added is based on the amount of liquid. Example: If sauce has 2 cups of liquid; then add 1 cup of rice. Can add more water if needed. Add rice and bring back to a boil. Cover saucepan with a dish towel (to absorb moisture) and replace lid. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes until moisture is gone and rice is done- do not stir.
