Roll and tie lamb with kitchen string at 5cm (2-inch) intervals. Using mortar and pestle, crush garlic, coriander root and stem mixture, spices and half the oil until almost smooth. Rub garlic mixture all over lamb. Cover; refrigerate 2 hours.


Heat remaining oil in large frying pan; cook lamb, until browned all over. Remove from pan. Cook onion in same pan, stirring, until softened.


Place stock, cinnamon and onion mixture in 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker; top with lamb, drizzle with honey. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, covered, on low, 8 hours. Stand lamb 10 minutes; stir quince paste into sauce.


Thickly slice lamb, serve with sauce; sprinkle with chopped coriander.

Cover and refrigerate lamb overnight at the end of step 1, if you like.
