  5. Heat a heavy bottomed pan and add a little olive oil. Fry the paste until fragrant and aromatic for 2 minutes. Add chopped onion and fry quickly for 4 minutes. Remove from the pan and place in a bowl with the lamb.

  6. Roughly chop the parsley and add to the mixture. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
