MAU MAU SHREDDED LEG OF LAMB
1 leg of lamb
1 bulb of garlic peeled and sliced
3 red chillies sliced
1 tablespoon of coriander
1 tablespoon of cumin
1oz of brown sugar (you can use honey)
With a sharp knife cut deeply into the lamb on all sides. Insert the garlic and chilli pieces and rub with olive oil and sesame oil. Leave it to stand for half an hour.
In the meantime mix the coriander, cumin and sugar with plenty of salt and black pepper.
Massage the mixture into the lamb making sure it it covered and that it gets into the cuts.
Leave for an hour.
Rub the leg with olive oil and salt and wrap in foil.
Cook on a low heat for two hours before removing the foil then turn up to medium and finish off for an hour and a half (you can also do this in a roasting tray with water on a low heat for four hours). Just keep an eye on it and turn it over now and again.
The skin will blacken with the sugar but the meat will shred easily with a fork and can be served in wraps or pita. Best with salad and olives and fruity white wine.
Ideal for a barbeque... Just cook it in the foil for an extra hour and put it on the pit to brown.
