Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • With a sharp knife, make 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch-deep gashes on all sides of lamb in a crisscross pattern. Place the lamb in a plastic bag. Combine yogurt, lime juice, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour the yogurt mixture over the lamb, turning to cover. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place the lamb on a lightly oiled rack in a roasting pan. Combine coriander, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the lamb.

  • Roast the lamb for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and continue roasting until a meat thermometer registers 140 degrees F for medium-rare, 55 to 60 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before carving.

  • Meanwhile, make Fresh Mango Chutney to serve with the lamb.
