Ingredients

  • 700g lean boneless lamb
  • a bunch of mint , stalks removed (a supermarket pack is about right)
  • 1 fresh red chilli , deseeded
  • 2 small red onions
  • 150g tub low fat natural yogurt

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cut the lamb into mouthful sized chunks. Chop the mint and put half in a large bowl and half in a small bowl. Finely chop the chilli and add half to each bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Stir 3 tbsp of olive oil into the large bowl, season, then add the lamb and turn until glistening and well coated (you can do this up to a day ahead).

  • STEP 3

    Finely chop half an onion and add to the small bowl with the yogurt. Season, stir well, then chill until ready to eat (it will keep for a day in the fridge). Cut the rest of the onion into wedges and separate the layers.

  • STEP 4

    Thread the lamb on to four large skewers, with onion in between. Preheat the grill or barbecue and cook the skewers for 6-8 minutes, turning until evenly browned. Serve the lamb with dollops of cooler, a leafy salad and hot new potatoes.
