Moroccan Lamb Meatball Tagine

[Photograph: Kerry Saretsky]

This tagine is a mix of Moroccan flavor and an Italian Grandma's Sunday night comfort food. Big, tender balls of ground lamb stewed with shallots, cilantro, fresh mint, tomatoes, garlic, carrots, and ras-el-hanout--a spice blend kicked up with cumin, cinnamon, dried chilies, and rose petals, among many other things. The result is something hearty and comforting, but unfamiliar and exotic.
