Heat a tbsp of oil in a large pan, and stir fry your lamb for about three minutes. After this, add the spice mix, and fry for one minute more.
Add the tomatoes, bring to a boil and then simmer for fifteen minutes, until the meat has softened. At this point, add the prunes and simmer for a further five minutes.
Meanwhile, make the couscous by putting it into a large, heatproof bowl along with the boiling water, a pinch of salt and a tbsp of oil. Cover the bowl with some cling film, and leave for five minutes.
When ready, fluff the couscous with a fork, add the lemon rind, juice and mint, and serve hot with the lamb.
