EatingWell Test Kitchen
“A spicy, yogurt-based marinade tenderizes the lamb, which is accompanied by a sweet and gingery chutney.”
1 5-pound bone-in leg of lamb, trimmed
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
¼ cup lime juice, (2 limes)
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
Fresh Mango Chutney, (recipe follows)
1With a sharp knife, make ¼-inch to ½-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.
2Preheat oven to 450°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.
3Roast the lamb for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and continue roasting until a meat thermometer registers 140°F for medium-rare, 55 to 60 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before carving.
4Meanwhile, make Fresh Mango Chutney to serve with the lamb.
