Leg of Lamb Roast 1

Loosely adapted from a recipe for kababs in Maya Kaimal's wonderful cookbook, "Curried Favors"


Essential spices for cooking with lamb


The flavor created by this particular set of spices goes well with raita, the classic yoghurt and cucumber salad from northern India (very easy to make, lots of recipes on the web).

Add a basmati or other rice side dish spiffed up with onion, spices from the sweet brown side (cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, cardamom, allspice, or whatever you have around), and some frozen peas thrown in for good measure, and you will have yourself one elegant dinner.

Bon appétit!
