Original recipe from The Andalusian Cookbook/A Collection of Medieval and Renaissance Cookbooks Vol. II, David Freidman:
Take the meat of a young plump lamb. Cut it in little pieces and put it in a clean pot with salt, pepper, coriander, a little juice of crushed onion, a spoonful of sweet oil and a sufficient amount of water. Put it over a gentle fire and be careful to stir it, put in meatballs and some peeled, minced almonds. When the meat is done and has finished cooking, set the pot on the ashes until it is cooked. He who wants this tafaya green can give it this color with cilantro juice alone or with a little mint juice.
