Sikandari Raan

3-3 1/2 pound leg of lamb
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp chaat masala
4 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp garlic paste
2 tsp ginger paste
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp mace powder
1 cup malt vinegar
2 tsp red chili powder
1/2 cup rum
Salt to taste

Prick lamb all over with a fork. Marinade the lamb in a mixture of salt, red chili powder, finger and garlic pastes, mace and cardamom powders and lemon juice. Set aside for 2 hours.

Place in a roasting pan and pour the vinegar, rum and 4 cups of water over the lamb. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 1-1 1/2 hours turning the lamb over 2-3 time to ensure it cooks evenly. The liquid should be evaporated. Bast the lamb with oil and grill until well done and nicely browned all over.

Serve with raw onion rings and sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with chaat masala and serve hot.
