This is easy to make just marinate the leg of lamb and then roast. I have to say that this is better if made on a rotisserie and cooked over low heat on the barbecue. This must be marinated for 24 hours in the spice mixture. If you are a lover of Indian food, then this is a recipe you will love.

Cut the lamb into chunks and shish-ke-bab-ed. Marinated 8 hours. Grilled on the BBQ. Completely delicious. Thanks K!
