I'd like to make a moroccan dish, but I've never made any moroccan foods before. What spices do I need? Do you have a recipe? I don't want to use lamb -- I'd rather use chicken. And cous cous? Do I need dried fruit? Thanks!!! FTR, I can google. Anyone can google. I'm looking for personal experiences.

    This Site Might Help You. RE: how to cook' arabian lamb leg tagine in moroccan spices'?If you want to be utterly authentic, you have to buy a special pot which cooks over a little charcoal fire. Otherwise, stew the lamb with prunes and onions, very slowly and gently, Popular Moroccan spices include saffron, coriander, sometimes ginger. Often sesame seeds are thrown over the food just before serving
