INDIAN SPICED ROASTED LEG OF LAMB

INDIAN SPICED ROASTED LEG OF LAMB

Lamb is so versatile and as most ethnicities eat it, there are virtually limitless ways and flavourings that work well with it. This time I decided to do Indian and it worked so well and everyone loved it. I knew it would be amazing just based on the wonderful smell from the marinade every time I opened the fridge. Serve it up with some rice, flatbread and a nice yogurt dip...and a nice cold beer!

Here's what you'll need

  • 1 whole leg of lamb
  • 1 whole head of garlic (grated)
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger (grated)
  • 1 lemon (1 sliced thick and 1 juiced and zested)
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp ground mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp ground fenugreek
  • 2 tbsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • salt and pepper

Here's how:

  1. mix all the spices, yogurt, garlic, ginger and lemon juice and zest in a bowl

  2. slash the lamb leg a few times, to the bone

  3. season the lamb well with salt and pepper, and slather it with the yogurt marinade

  4. wrap well with cling film and pop into the fridge to marinatef overnight or up to a few days (the longer the better)

  5. unwrap the lamb and place onto a rack over a roasting pan and allow to sit for at least an hour to get it to room temperature and preheat your oven to 350°
