    **Mandy**'s Note:

    This recipe is quite flexible & can also be done on the BBQ. When I made this I didn't have any mint so just added a few teaspoons of mint sauce instead. Was really tasty served with Aaloo Mattar ( Indian-Style Peas and Potatoes) and pappadams! Sorry about the poor photo, forgot to take it before we ate so photo is of leftovers.

      I followed Heydarl's suggestion and cut the lamb criss cross so it would soak up the marinade. The result was a tender and very flavorful piece of meat! I wasn't sure what prepared chili was, so I used chili powder. Also I used rosemary instead of the mint as we don't care for it. We thought this was really good and will make again!

      This is a five star keeper all the way! I love butterflied leg of lamb, but this was such a nice switch from the usual marinade I do. Delicious and very tender!!! I used more like 2 TBSP of the curry powder and doubled everything else for a 5 lb leg of lamb. As per the other reviewer, I cut the meat with a cross-hatch pattern about 1/2 inch into the flesh, to allow the marinade to soak in. I let it sit in the marinade for about 4 hours before we cooked it. We used the marinade that didn't cling to the meat to make a nice sauce to pour over the lamb. Just heated it though in a little sauce pan, and poured it over the finished meat. VERY tasty! We had about a lb of leftover lamb, so it made a very good curry the next night! Thank you for a great recipe! We'll do this again!

      I boned a 1.6k leg of lamb which I marinated for 24 hours. I did sub oregano for the mint as we don't care for mint. It took nearly 2 hours to cook to well done in a 170 c degree fan forced oven but it was beautifully moist. DH still was not convinced though that a yoghurt marinade can be great though he conceded it was beautifully moist and wasn't baaing at him. Thank you Mandy from Oz for a very enjoyable recipe.
