Kurdish Roasted Lamb - Qalî

Gather your friends and do the roasted lamb together. It is easy to prepare, takes care of itself and tastes delicious - just make sure you buy lamb of good quality.

INGREDIENTS

One small leg of lamb

3 garlic cloves

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tbsp crushed red chilli


DIRECTIONS

1. Set the oven to 225 degrees. Make small cuts in the lamb leg and fill it with small slices of garlic.

2. Cut of the membranes and kernels on a chili fruit. Mash it in a mortar or a mixer and mix in olive oil.

3. Rub the mixture over the entire lamb leg. Wear a plastic glove to avoid chilli on your hands.

4. Place the leg in an ovenproof tin, most preferably a roasting tin with a lid as it provides a juicier steak and roast for 1.5 hours.
