  • Add the lamb into a bowl.
  • Add the wine, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 12 hours so that the lamb gets marinated.
  • Drain and add into a bowl. Add the salt, the dill finely chopped, and mix well.
  • In an oval roaster pan add the cloves of garlic, the rosemary sprigs, and the wine in which you marinated the lamb. Add a rack inside and place the lamb on top. Close the roaster pan and set aside.

For the dough

  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (390ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl add the water, the flour, and mix until you get an elastic dough. Wrap with plastic wrap and allow 1 hour for it to rest.
  • Shape into a long strip and cover the roaster pan all around, by sealing the spot where the roaster pan and the lid join. The goal is to keep the whole moisture into the roaster pan.
  • Roast for 30 minutes. Then, lower the heat to 120ο C (250ο F) set to fan and roast for 4 more hours.
  • Break the dough that is all around the roaster pan, and serve the lamb with mashed potatoes, olive oil, salt, and rosemary.
