Prick the leg of mutton with a fork and mix all the ingredients (except for oil) and leave it to marinate for about 1 ½ hour. Put the leg in a big pot and cover. Let it cook till all the juice dries up. Add the oil to it and in case it is not tender, add half a cup of warm water and leave it covered for a while till it is done. Serve it on a plate or dish garnished with lettuce and cucumber, spoon the remaining sauce from the pot on top of the roast.
