I added a teaspoon of mint sauce to the lamb (500g minced) with the spices and garlic. Also, I crumbled feta and drizzled more mint sauce to finish. A very quick, tasty and filling midweek supper for a family of 3.

I added red onion and roughly chopped tomato whilst cooking and also drizzled some chilli sauce onto them
Quick and delish
Perfect lazy lounging food for a Sunday afternoon.

Not very tasty and not at all filling: I was very disappointed with this - I am usually a great fan of Good Food recipes.

I noted the previous comments and doubled the quantity of spices and added an extra 1/2tsp of cinnamon and allspice. I also added a whole chilli and blitzed it in the food proc with 4 cloves of garlic.
I am not a fan of shop bought mince, so I bought 4 neck pieces of lamb and blitzed that in the food processor.
Instead of yogurt, I flaked feta cheese before rolling the wrap up.
Very yummy.

I used a table spoon of uncooked mince per flat bread with the rest of the recipe ingredients + finely chopped medium onion and an extra tomato and mixed in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Spread the mixture very thinly over the bread (use your hands to press flat onto the bread) . It was very tasty and very light. I enjoyed it so did the kids.

I will be making a vegetarian version of this because the basic recipe looks good! I love turkish food :)

Unfortunately i didn't enjoy these as much as i thought i would. They were a little greasy and the mince mixture didn't seem to go very far (i used tesco healthy living flour tortllas, maybe they were too big?). Also i didn't have as much mint as the recipe called for which definately made a difference. I will make these again but i'll use smaller tortillas, drain the mince before adding the spices and use loads of mint. Aslo would serve it with a big salad as i didn't find it very filling.
