    For the megalgal, set a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the ghee and onions then cook for 4-5 minutes until they start to turn translucent. Stir in the lamb and ground ginger, then add a splash of water. Continue to cook the lamb, covered with a lid, for 20-25 minutes, adding a splash of water as needed. You want to cook the lamb until it is soft and tender, with a beautiful dark brown exterior.
