In India, tough mutton is tenderised by marinating it in yoghurt and spices. It is a delicious way to treat a shoulder of lamb.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 shoulder of lamb, boned
1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 teaspoons ground coriander
good pinch saffron, crumbled, (optional)
salt and freshly ground black pepper
250g plain yoghurt
2 onions, finely sliced
30g butter

Method

  1. Score surface of lamb in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. Rub in lemon juice, spices, salt and pepper. Spread yoghurt over lamb. Leave to marinate in a glass or ceramic dish for 1–2 hours.
  2. Spread lamb on a rack in a roasting tin, cover with any marinade and roast in a preheated moderate oven for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, fry sliced onions in butter until lightly coloured. Spoon onions over meat and continue to roast for a further 30 minutes for medium-rare lamb. Serve, cut in strips, with boiled rice or a rice pilaf flavoured with sultanas and cinnamon.
