Method

Curry Roasted Lamb

Step 01

Place the garlic, oil, yogurt, ginger, coriander, pepper, curry powder, chili, salt, sugar and lemon in a large bowl and stir until smooth.

Step 02

Pierce the lamb leg in random spots all over and pour the marinade over the meat, ensuring all surfaces are covered.

Step 03

Cover with cling film, place the meat in the fridge and leave to marinate at least 8 hours but preferably overnight.

Step 04

Preheat the oven to 320ºF/160ºC.

Step 05

Remove the cling film and place the meat in an oiled roasting tray.

Step 06

Cook in the oven for 2 hours. Check that the meat cooks evenly, otherwise you’ll need to turn the tray around halfway through.

Step 07

Crank up the heat to 390ºF/200 and cook for another 30 minutes.

Step 08

The lamb should have formed a golden, crisp crust.

Step 09

Switch off the oven and leave the lamb in there for another 30 minutes, then serve.

Remember to use cling film to wrap it!

Method
Roasted Leg of Lamb

Step 01

Set the lamb in a rack inside a roasting pan, before rubbing the lamb with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper for a balanced flavour.
Step 02
Broil the lamb for 5 minutes or until lamb leg looks seared and browned. Position a rack below so that the top of the meat is a few inches from the broiler element. Flip it over and broil the other side for another 5 minutes.
Step 03
Mince the garlic and rosemary. This is the marinade.
Step 04
Top it with garlic and rosemary, remove the lamb out from the oven and set oven to 160˚C. Reposition the oven rack to the middle of the oven.
Step 05
Flip the lamb leg over and again rub the top with the marinade. Cover loosely with foil and cook for an hour.
Step 06
Remove the foil after an hour, set temperature to 50-80˚C, and let it rest inside the oven for another 20 minutes making it medium-rare to medium. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving it.

Take the chilled lamb out of the refrigerator an hour before cooking. This enables the lamb to cook faster.
