Combine the garlic/ginger paste and the salt with
The cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne, cloves, and lemon juice to make a paste. If paste seems too thick, add more lemon juice. Spread the paste over the meat, forcing into each slit.

Stir pan juices and drizzle over carved meat on platter.
