  1. Cook the lamb mince for 5-6 mins in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When starting to brown, stir in the garlic and spices, then cook for 2-3 mins more until the mince is brown and there is no liquid left in the pan. Stir in the chopped mint, tomatoes and some seasoning.

One of my favorite recipes! The spices are enough if you fry the lamb to a very crumbly consistency. I like to serve them with a mix of cucumber, feta, red onions and a drizzle of white balsamic vinegar piled on.

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.
