Fry the onion in the oil on a low heat until caramelised then add the curry powder, turmeric and cinnamon and fry for a minute.

Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer on a low heat until thickened.

Pour the marinade over the lamb leg cubes in an airtight container and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 12 hours. You can marinate them for up to 72 hours.

Place five to six cubes of marinated meat onto a soaked skewer and either cook until medium well on the braai or in a hot pan.

Brush over some extra marinade everytime you turn the sosaties. Because of the sugar in the marinade it burns easily so watch out.

Wrapping a roosterkoek around a warm sosatie, pull the skewer out so that the meat stays behind in the roosterkoek. Add some sambal and enjoy!
