  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan-forced). Line a large roasting dish with baking paper.
  2. In a small bowl, place half the oil, chopped coriander, garlic and tandoori paste. Season and stir to combine.

Place lamb on top of onions, pour 1/3 cup water into base of dish, cover with foil and roast for 2 hours. Remove foil, spoon juices over lamb and add pumpkin to dish. Cook for a further 30-40 minutes, or until lamb is cooked to your liking and vegetables are tender. Remove lamb from dish and set aside covered with foil for 15 minutes to rest.
