Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and cook the lamb for a few minutes on each side to brown. Remove the meat from the pan and with a slotted spoon and add the onion, garlic, and chopped chillis and cook, stirring for about 5 minutes until the onions are softened, but not browned.

Before serving stir the lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon should do, but add as much or a little to taste) into the soup and season. Spoon into bowls and top with the fresh herbs.
