Cover tightly with a lid or foil and place in the middle of the oven. Roast, covered, for 1½ hours. The lamb will be cooked but not falling-apart tender, and the sauce will be thin. Uncover and continue roasting until the lamb is meltingly tender and the sauce has thickened, another 30 minutes. Garnish with the almonds and raisins and serve.
