    Set a large frying pan with the olive oil over a medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook for 4-6 minutes, until softened. Tip in the mince, increase the heat and cook, stirring every so often, for 3-4 minutes, until browned all over. Stir in the pomegranate molasses, the tomato puree and spices and cook for 2 minutes more.

    Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool slightly before stirring in the lemon juice, chopped tomato and parsley. Set aside to cool.
