If you’re having a get-together at home, these are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. I just loved this recipe.

Serve with some diced red onion tossed in lime juice and some lime wedges. For some extra spice, add some small green chillies.

Makes 12-14.

Ingredients

FOR THE LAMB SKEWERS

  • 1kg boneless lamb leg, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 100g natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Melted ghee, for brushing

FOR THE MINT YOGHURT

  • 250g natural yoghurt
  • 1/3 cup mint

Method

  1. Preheat a barbecue to high. Combine lamb, yoghurt, tomato paste, spices and garlic in a bowl and season well to taste. Thread lamb onto skewers, and grill, turning and brushing with ghee occasionally, until charred and cooked through (approximately 5-8 minutes).
  2. For mint yoghurt, blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Season lamb skewers with salt to taste and serve with chillies, red onion, lime wedges and mint yoghurt topped with chopped mint.
