Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1cm piece root ginger, grated
  • 1 chilli, de-seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp Asda Tikka Curry Powder
  • 1 tbsp Asda Garam Masala
  • 250g natural low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tbsp ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 boneless leg of lamb (approximately 750g)
Method
  • Heat the oil and cook the onion over a medium heat until soft. Add the ginger, chilli (if using) and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes over a low heat, stirring. Add the tikka curry powder and garam masala and stir for another minute.

  • Tip into a bowl and leave to cool. Stir in the yogurt, almonds and lemon juice.

  • Cut through the thick part of the lamb with a sharp knife to form a large open joint. Spread both sides with the spicy yogurt mixture. Place in a non-metallic dish and cover with cling film. Chill for at least 4 hours to marinate.

  • Scrape off most of the marinade. Cook the lamb on a pre-heated barbecue and cook away from the coals for another 10-20 minutes, until cooked to your liking.

  • Cover with foil and leave to rest for 15 minutes before slicing thickly, to serve.
