Laban Immo (Lamb & Yogurt Stew)

Changed this up slightly from another recipe I came across. Feel free to do what you like with the spices.

1 kg diced lamb
2 onions, sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 large tub yogurt
beef or other broth
ground pepper
olive oil
1 can chickpeas
frozen broccoli &/or other veg

Saute onions, then garlic, in olive oil. Push to the side of pan when almost done cooking. Toss diced lamb in flour, pepper & paprika mix, then add to pan to brown. In separate pan, mix yogurt and an equal amount of broth. Whisk while heating, then bring to simmer. After lamb is browned, add yogurt mix to pan, along with chickpeas. Add cinnamon and rosemary. Bring to summer and let cook for about an hour. Serve with bread!

Combine all but the cream (top the rest with that). Garnish with cinnamon sticks or choc shavings (optional).
