Leg of Lamb Marinaded Indian Style

So, how about deviating from the traditional roast lamb and going for an exciting array of Indian inspired sharing dishes instead?  Our marinated roast leg of lamb, served with salads and rice is a winner combination of delicious (family friendly) flavours as well as being entirely practical in that most of the work happens the day before.   Don't worry, there is no real heat from the spices in the following recipes, just delicious Indian flavours.  

Prepare the day before

It's best to marinade the lamb the day before. Just whizz up onions, ginger and garlic with our bhuna or tandoori masala spices, with a little water to combine, then smother all over the lamb and leave to marinate in the fridge the night before.  See below for the link to the full recipe.

Also on the day before, make our super simple and delicious Mint and Coriander Raita and Lentil and Tomato Salad or try our delicious carrot salad.

You could also make this suitable for al fresco dining if the sun is shining.  Slice the lamb and load into pitta breads or flatbreads and combine with the side dishes and salads for a de-formalised version!
