Heat the oil in a saucepan and then sauté the onions until soft.
Add the lamb pieces, stirring with a wooden spoon and fry until lightly brown.
Add the salt, spices and herbs. Dissolve the bouillon cube in the warm water and add to the stew. Simmer on low heat for 35 to 40 minutes.
Add the potatoes and carrots. Simmer for another 30 minutes until the meat is soft.
Add the green beans and cook for 10 minutes. Add the peas and mayonnaise, stir through and cook for 5 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
Scrub, halve and de-seed the squash, then cut into chunky boat-shaped wedges (roughly the same shape), then place in a roasting tray.
Pound the coriander seeds and chilli(es) in a pestle and mortar with the salt, then sprinkle over the squash.
Lightly squash the unpeeled garlic cloves and strip the leaves from the rosemary sprigs, then add to the tray with oil and toss together.
Then roast for 30 minutes, or until tender and starting to caramelise at the edges.
Serve the stew with the butternut and rice or mealie pap.
