  2. Marinate the leg pushing the marinade deep into the cuts and spread all over on both sides. Refrigerate for 12-24 hours .
  3. When you are ready to cook , fry onions till they are golden brown , drain oil and make a paste. Mix into the marinated leg of lamb .
  4. Place the leg in a wide oven proof dish. Heat the ghee / oil - pour over the leg and sides.

The longer the marination the softer it is.
