Wash and chop all the fresh spring onions, garlic, parsley and spearmint. Cut in big pieces to have more texture in the stew. Take saucepan and add the lamb in, together with the onions and garlic. Pour 1 liter hot water and give it a good stir. Bring to boil with the lid on for about 15 minutes, then reduce to medium heat. Stew until almost ready (approximately 3 hours).
Add sunflower oil, parsley, fresh spearmint, red pepper and black pepper and stir again. Sprinkle with salt and flour and cover with the lid again. Cook for another hour. Remove the lid for the final 30 minutes to get the water boiled away and achieve thicker consistence. Try it before serving and season lightly with additional salt and pepper if necessary. Serve with spring garlic.
