4. Heat the oven to 160 °C.

5. Put the leg in a roasting pan, meaty side up, and season with salt and pepper. Pour boiling water (or half water/half wine) in the roasting pan so that about a quarter of the leg is in the liquid. Cover with aluminium foil and bake for about 3 hours or until the meat is tender enough that you can use a spoon to break it into chunks.

6. Remove the foil just before serving, increase the oven temperature to 200 °C and roast until the meat is browned.

7. Reduce the pan juices until thickened. Transfer the meat to a serving platter, sprinkle fresh coriander over and serve with the gravy and atchar.

Potato kebabs

Boil 1 kg baby potatoes until soft. Cut 2-3 red onions into wedges and thread the potatoes and onions onto rosemary twigs or kebab skewers. Transfer to a baking sheet greased with olive oil and roast alongside the lamb until lightly browned.
