This is the sophisticated, poshed-up version of a takeaway classic. The crisp red cabbage works wonderfully with the rich lamb. Serve with a pile of French fries for a true takeaway feel.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1.5kg boneless leg of lamb
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 bunch coriander, leaves and stems separated
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red cabbage, shredded
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
6 flatbreads
natural yogurt
chilli sauce
pickled green chillies

Method

  1. Allow the lamb to come to room temperature. Use a sharp knife to make small incisions all over the surface, then transfer to a deep roasting tray. Mix the garlic, cumin, and ground coriander in a small bowl. Finely chop the coriander stems and mix into the garlic and spices along with the oil and plenty of seasoning to make a rough paste. Rub all over and into the lamb, and allow to sit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Roast the lamb for 30 minutes, then remove it from the oven, reduce the heat to 180°C, and pour in 50ml cold water. Cover tightly with foil and cook for a further 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the cabbage with the onion, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, and some seasoning. Toss to combine and set aside until ready to use.
  4. Remove the lamb from the oven, transfer to a board, cover loosely with foil, and rest for 20 minutes. Warm the flatbreads in the oven. Use a sharp knife to really thinly slice the lamb. Pile onto the flatbreads with the red cabbage, coriander leaves, and a dollop of yogurt. Serve with your favourite chilli sauce and pickled green chillies.
