Not traditional but still so tasty and a great way to add a central dish to accompany all the other delicious eats on the table. The marinade is also perfect for beef or chicken.
In a mortar and pestle grind the spices well together before adding the oil and making a wet paste.
Rub into the lamb covering all areas.
Allow to marinate overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Preheat oven to 180C and place the lamb in a greased oven tray.
Cook the lamb for 1 hour for rare or 1 hour 20 for well done.
Allow to rest before carving at the table.
