Mix all dry ingredients together and add a little water to create a paste.
Rub paste into the lamb. Make 6 slits in the flesh and insert the cloves. Cover and place in fridge overnight to marinade.
Remove lamb from the fridge to allow it to come to room temperature.
Place in the oven at 190 and cook for 1 hour.
Melt butter in a small pan and add sauces, sugar and vinegar.
Pour off excess fat and add a little stock. Coat llamb with half the sauce. Return to oven for 15 mins.
Pour the remaining sauce over lamb and cook until tender.
Remove meat and pour in remaining stock. Bring to boil and reduce to thickened. You can also thicken with a little cornflour if you wish.
Shop bought stock is a fine but if you want to make your own just cut off the shank end of the lamb, place in a pan with a pint of water and a sliced onion, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes then strain.
