Soy Sauce and a pinch of Curry (not spicy) are optional

250 ml. White wine,

½  glass of Water

One onion

150 gr. Mushrooms

A celery stalk


Glass of oil



  • The night before, smear the Lamb Leg with salt until you whiten it; let it rest through the night. In the morning, rinse it from the salt and squeeze the juice of 3 lemons. Let it rest for another hour, then put it in a pan. Season the Lamb Leg with salt, pepper, oil, one whole lemon cut in half, a few lemon peels, carrots cut in half, the onion cut in half, a stalk of celery and sage, the rosemary branch, a sprinkling of turmeric and Curry, and splash it with 250ml.

  • Cover with silver paper. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees C for a minimum of 3 hours, occasionally turning it on all sides. The lamb leg must be well-roasted on all sides.

  • Once cooked, add the boiled potato and mushrooms and a splash of Soy Sauce. Keep baking till it turns golden brown, as in our picture.
