  • 500 gr lamb neck fillet or boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 3 cm cubes
  • 1 litre chicken stock (made with 2 stock cubes)
  • 300 gr basmati rice
  • 250 g frozen broad beans
  • 4 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 40gr fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp dried dill

For the cucumber, dill and yoghurt sauce

  • 1 cucumber, coarsely grated
  • 500g full-fat natural yogurt
  • 1 tbs dried dill
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Place the lamb and stock in a large pan and bring to the boil. Skim off the foam on the surface, reduce the heat to medium-low and gently simmer for 1 hour (or 1 1/2 hour if you are using lamb shoulder), until cooked through.

Wash the rice and leave it soaking for 30minutes. Blanch the broad beans in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, drain and refresh under cold water. Remove the outer skins.

When the lamb is cooked, drain and reserve the stock. Heat half of the oil in a heavy-based pan and fry the garlic until it just starts to colour. Add the cooked lamb and fry for 5-6 minutes until evenly browned, stirring all the time. Add the broad beans and half fo the fresh and dried dill and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate set aside and keep warm.

In the same pan, heat the remaining oil on low-medium heat. Drain the rice and add to the pan, stirring until all the grains are coated with oil. Add 500ml of the meat stock, bring to a simmer, cover with a tight-fitting lid, then turn the heat to the lowest setting and cook for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the yogurt sauce. Miz the grated cucumber and yogurt in a bowl. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the dried dill and drizzle with the olive oil.

When the rice is ready, stir it with a fork to fluff it. Add the rest of the fresh and dried dill, the reserved stock if you need extra moisture and cook on a low heat for about 8 minutes. Serve immediately with the cucumber, dill and yogurt sauce.

Bon appetit!
