1½ t ground coriander

5 cardamom pods

2 t turmeric

Freshly ground black pepper

Salt to season

1,5 kg leg of lamb

1 T freshly ground coffee

Olive oil

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

Mix all the spices together and rub the leg of lamb with the coffee and spices.  Drizzle with a little olive oil and place in a roasting pan.  Cover with foil and place in the preheated oven for 2 hours.  After two hours remove the foil and place back in the oven for another hour.  I prefer to use meat from a slightly older animal and cook it for 3 hours, as it enhances the effect of this exquisite combination of flavours.

Remove from the oven and allow the meat to rest for 20 minutes before carving.
