Fry the onion and carrot in olive oil, when they are beginning to brown add the garlic and ginger, stir around and then add the harissa paste and Moroccan spice.

4

Add a splash of water and then add the chicken. Once the chicken is sealed, add the tin of tomatoes, tomato puree, salt, black pepper, sugar and stock cube. Add a splash of water to loosen the mix a bit so the chicken is mostly covered.

5

After 15 minutes, add the chickpeas, green beans, peppers and cook for around 45-60 mins.

6

Towards the end of cooking adjust the seasoning and add a good squirt of lemon juice.
