Recipe: Lamb kebabs

This is really two recipes: the lamb kebabs themselves and a yoghurt-and-cucumber thing to go with them.

Ingredients

500g Minced lamb
1 Egg
1t Ground coriander
1t Ground cumin
1T Paprika
0.5t Cayenne pepper
0.25t Salt
pinch Ground pepper
(1T = one tablespoon = 15ml; 1t = one teaspoon = 5ml)

Method

Blend all the ingredients except the mince together, then thoroughly mix this into the mince and set aside in the fridge (for at least 2 hours, but all day if possible).

Split the mixture into 6 equal pieces and form each piece into a sausage shape on a kebab skewer. Grill for 10 minutes, then turn over and grill for another 10 minutes. (Of course, in summer you can cook them on the barbecue.)

Yoghurt and Cucumber

This goes very well with these kebabs. It's a bit like tsatsiki.

Ingredients

500g Greek yoghurt
1 Cucumber: peeled, de-seeded and chopped
1T Fresh coriander, chopped finely
1T Fresh mint, chopped finely
1T White wine vinegar
0.25t Salt
pinch Ground pepper
(1T = one tablespoon = 15ml; 1t = one teaspoon = 5ml)

Method

Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours. Serve.
