Leaderprice Viande et Pommes Recreation

Deceptively plain in appearance and simplicity, this dish is an explosion of savoury flavours and mouth-watering richness. Give it a try and let me know what you think! This can also be done with just plain onions and potatoes, if looking for a delicious side-dish. Bake at high temperature for an extra crisp at the end!

  • 500 g minced/ground lamb or mutton or mutton diced into very small pieces, maybe a cm in size.
  • 1/2 kg onions peeled and diced
  • 10-12 large potatoes peeled and diced into even-sized small pieces
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 2 tbps Morrocan spice mix
  • 3-4 tbsp tumeric powder
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp garam marsala
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cardamom


  • Microwave the potato pieces for 5-6 minutes in 1 minute chunks. They should be firm and at the 'just cooked' stage. Set aside.
  • In a large stew pot, brown the lamb and onions together, breaking apart the mince into as small chunks as you possibly can.
  • Add the onion soup mix when the meat is just browned. Allow the meat to cook through as this releases more fat into the pan. Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Add the spices and potatoes, stirring them together quickly. The potatoes should start getting an orangey color from the spices.
  • Cover the pot and allow to cook at a low medium heat, stirring to keep the food from burning, until the potatoes are lightly browned can be cut with a spoon but not mashed.
  • Serve by itself or over rice to further stretch the dish!


Some folks might find this overspiced; if so, halve the spice amounts. Found that tossing in steamed rice helps spread out the spices as well.
