Mix the onions, figs, paprika, mushrooms and lamb meat in an ovenproof dish with a lid.
Add the spices and remaining ingredients, all except the cornstarch and the cream. Put the lid on. Place in the preheated oven and cook for 1 ½ hours. Oven temperature 150 Celsius degrees.
Take the dish out of the oven and strain the broth in a separate pot. Cool off and place in refrigerator.
When the broth is cold take off the fat that is on the top. Heat the broth and mix in the cornstarch until it thickens a bit for a nice sauce. Use more starch if you feel the sauce is too thin for your liking. Taste off to your own taste with adding more salt or pepper or spices and add the cream.
