Lamb

  • 45ml/3tbsp Madras curry paste or curry paste of your choice
  • 30ml/2tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 30ml/2tbsp freshly chopped coriander
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
Method: 
  1. In a small bowl mix together the curry paste, yogurt, garlic and coriander.  Set aside.
  2. Put the lamb on a chopping board, make several slits over the surface and season. Transfer to a plate, brush the yogurt mixture all over.  If time allows cover and marinate the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 6, 200C, 400°F. Put the lamb on a metal rack in a small roasting tin lined with foil and cook for 25-30 minutes. Cover with foil if browning too quickly.
  4. Transfer the lamb to a warm plate, cover and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Slice the lamb and serve with saag aloo, spiced carrots and chapatis.
