Method

  1. Heat the grill to medium. Mix the yogurt and mint sauce together, then divide the mixture in half. Stir the cumin into one half of the yogurt mix, then pour over the diced lamb. Mix thoroughly to coat and season well.

  2. Thread the lamb onto 4 skewers, alternating with pieces of onion, then arrange on the wire rack of a grilling tray. Grill the kebabs for 3-4 mins on each side, until the lamb is cooked through and the onion is beginning to brown. Warm the pittas in a toaster for 1-2 mins and split open. Stuff the pittas with lamb, onion and lettuce, drizzling over the remaining minty yogurt to serve.

Tasty. I marinated the lamb overnight in the yogurt mixture. Also added tomatoes onto the skewers for bit of variety. Will cook again.

I added red wine vinegar, allspice,garlic, chili, and ras al hanout(middle eastern spice mix) to the recipe and also added peppers on the skewers with the lamb and onions. I served it with humus mixed with Greek yogurt and tabbouleh salad.

I loved these, very much my kind of food. The yogurt really tenderised the lamb.

I've made this a couple of times and will be making it again in the summer - hopefully on a BBQ if we get the weather :o)

Such a quick and easy meal. I cooked it for friends, it went down really well, so impressive. I put the lamb in the yogurt sauce for half a day and this really intensified the flavours on the lamb, gorgeous. Served with cous cous, olives, salad and pitta.

These kebabs were absolutely lovely. I marinated them for about an hour before hand and cooked them on low in the grill.
Will defiantly make them again. I used metal skewers.

These kebabs really are quite nice. The only problem with me was that i overcooked them a little, which is why i didn't enjoy them as much. But go ahead and make them, they might taste nicer on a barbecue than in a grill.
