Continue to cook for 15 minutes turning occasionally and brushing with the marinade. In the meantime cook the chickpeas. Once the lamb has cooked, rest for a few minutes then thinly slice.

After 5 minutes, drain the chickpeas on a kitchen towel. In the pan add the spices and the chickpeas and coat.

Add the honey and lemon juice and cook for further 5 minutes.

    Brew the tea in the hot water for 5 minutes, then pour over the chickpeas and seasonings. Cover with cling film till the water has absorbed. Allow to cool then add the vegetables.
  • Place salad leaves on a board or sharing platter. Top with the couscous then arrange slices of lamb on top.
