Leg of Lamb Recipe

Leg of Lamb Marinade

  • Author: MirriamSeddiq


This leg of lamb marinade takes all of the spices you are used to me using for Afghan Cooks recipes. Leg of lamb is a luxurious cut of meat. Just don’t overcook it and make sure the meat is butterflied before you slap it on the grill.



1 Leg of Lamb

1.5 Cups of Yogurt

2 Teaspoons Salt

2 Teaspoons Turmeric

1 Tablespoon Coriander

2 Teaspoons Paprika

2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

2 Teaspoons Cumin

2 Teaspoons Chili

1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1/4 Cup Lemon Juice

1/4 Cup Oil


  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Cover your leg of lamb.
  3. Sit overnight in fridge.
  4. Before you grill, let meat sit out for 30 minutes to “relax.”


When you make this leg of lamb marinade do not, under any circumstances, marinade any less than 24 hours. You want this marinade to not only flavor your meat, but tenderize it. Also, don’t over cook it.
