    1. Cover the lamb shanks with olive oil to coat, then place in a pressure cooker. Add chopped onion and cook over medium high heat for 5 minutes.
    2. Add tomatoes, courgettes, water and bay leaf and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Add wine and close the cooker. Cook over high heat until the valve whistles, then turn heat down to low and cook for 10 minutes before releasing the pressure.
    3. For the sauce: In a bowl combine the yoghurt, garlic, lemon and all of the herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and chill until serving.
    4. Serve the lamb shanks with the yoghurt sauce on the side. Couscous or rice make good accompaniments.
