- Cut through the fat of each piece of lamb neck as this will prevent it from curling up during cooking.
- In a large pot, brown the lamb in batches. Remove and set aside.
- In the same pot, fry the onions until soft and golden.
- Add the garlic and spices and fry for another minute before adding the tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes are softened and their juices have been released.
- Add the lamb back to the pot and stir to coat the lamb with the tomatoes and spices.
- Combine the stock, tomato puree and apricot jam and pour over the lamb. You need enough to just cover the lamb. Add the bay leaves.
- Reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer gently for 2 to 2 1/2 hours until the lamb can be pulled from the bone.
- Check the seasoning and adjust, it needs to be pleasantly sweet. Serve with the cooked Jasmine Rice.
