1. Put the vinegar in a large bowl with the onion, cumin, mustard seeds, garlic, ginger, chili powder, cloves and cinnamon and a little water. Mix well to form a smooth paste, then add the lam and stir to coat evenly. Cover and chill for 4 hours, or overnight.

2. Put 200ml water in a large pan over a high heat. Add the lamb mixture, tomatoes and sweetener and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, season well, cover tightly and simmer gently for 1 hour 30 minutes, or until the lamb is tender.

3. Divide the lamb and rice between 4 dishes. Garnish with coriander and chilli, and serve with lime wedges and steamed green beans on the side.
