.... Crisp-e and Sleepy.
First, make fire!
Secondly, rake over the coals to ensure an even burn. Garden implements are perfectly acceptable for this purpose.
Thirdly, present the meat. In this case, lamb shanks. Crisp-e had already performed some alchemy on these. He'd have to tell you what that was though! It involved herbs and four hours of cooking.
Cover with the homemade 'Tandoor'. A terracotta pot with something heavy dropped through the bottom.
Cover it over for a little bit.
Baste those bad boys. The cigarette is completely optional.
As you can see the meat can be stripped off with a spoon.
Finish of so the skin crisps up all lovely.
The meat was served up in warm tortillas, salad and a mint sauce. There are no photos of this as they didn't last that long!
They were the best thing I have eaten in ages.
