- STEP 1
Start by making your spice mix. Add all the spices together into a bowl and stir together to combine. Preheat the oven to 160c/320f.
- STEP 2
Now, brown your onions in a deep cast iron casserole dish, over a medium heat with a little oil.
- STEP 3
Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a couple of minutes.
- STEP 4
Pour in your spice mix and stir.
- STEP 5
Remove the onion mix and place in a bowl to one side.
- STEP 6
Next, add a little more oil to the same pan and sear the lamb shanks until lovely and brown. Once they have browned, add the onion mix back into the pan along with the tinned tomatoes. Using the tomatoes tin, fill it with water and add that to the pot too. Coat the lamb in the sauce and cover. Place in the oven to cook for 2 1/2 hours.
- STEP 7
Now onto the roti breads. Start by weighing out the flour in a bowl. Add the salt and oil. After that, add a little water and mix with your other hand. You want enough water that the dough comes together into a bowl. Once it has come together, place it in the fridge to chill until the lamb is nearly cooked.
- STEP 8
With approximately 15 minutes to go. Melt your butter with a little oil. Take the roti dough out of the fridge. Flour your work surface and split the dough into 3. Take one piece of dough and roll it out nice and thinly using a rolling pin. You want it so you can almost see through it. Now, brush some melted butter over the roti. Fold the bottom half into the centre and brush again. Now fold the top half over the bottom half. Brush the dough with some more butter and fold the sides in one at a time so they overlap. Repeat this with all of the roti (I hope this makes sense, if not there is a video)
- STEP 9
Set a frying pan over a medium/high heat. Take one roti and roll it out again on your floured work surface, making sure its nice and thin. Brush a little oil on the pan and add the roti. It will start to bubble and puff up. Flip the roti and cook the other side. Repeat.
- STEP 10
Remove the lamb from the oven and serve with the roti.
