Servings: 6


1 1/2 kg leg of lamb
1 teaspoon saffron strands
450 ml boling water
300 ml natural yoghurt
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 cloves garlic, crushed
6 green chillies, chopped
25 gm butter

Directions: How to Cook Saffron Baked Leg Of Lamb

Pound the saffron and mix it with the boiling water. Set aside. Trim all the fat off the leg of lamb. Mix the yoghurt, salt, pepper, garlic and chillies with a quarter of the saffron. Smear this mixture and the butter all over the leg of lamb, then wrap it in cooking foil, to enclose all the juices. Bake in a moderately hot oven (200c, 400F, gas 6) for 1 hour.

Unwrap the foil and pour another quarter of the saffron over the meat. Continue cooking for a further 15 minutes, again wrapped in foil. Open the foil and bake for a final 20 minutes. Shortly before serving, pour the remaining saffron over the meat.
