1.  Spread 50 gms butter and ground pepper and rub it on the lamb leg thoroughly.

2.  In a separate bowl, mix well the chopped onions, garlic, all the spices, olive oil and a little water.

3.  Take half of this mixture and spread firmly on the buttered meat.

4.  Pour the other half of the onion mixture and the rest of the butter in a large baking pan which should be large enough to accommodate the leg.

5.  Now place the lamb leg on this onion mixture bath, cover it with a foil and marinate for minimum 1 hr at room temperature.

6.  Remove the foil and slow grill the lamb leg at 175 °C for about 2.5 hrs until it turns crispy from outside and is cooked well. Every now and then, using a spoon, pour over the underlying onion juice on the lamb during grilling.

7.  Using a sharp knife, cut it in slices and serve it as a steak with rice or bread.

Cooks' note:
I bet this juicy and grilled lamb-leg is a nice treat for the meat-lovers !
1. If the meat is uncooked, you could regrill it in the oven for another half an hour or so.
2. This grill time varies according to the size of the lamb leg in different countries. Please adjust the time accordingly.
3. Feel free to use spices of your choice :)
