Middle Eastern Style Kebabs
Economical and easy to make, these middle eastern style kebabs are made with mince lamb and served with a simple to make mint flavoured yogurt sauce.
For the kebabs
lean minced lamb
each ground cinnamon
coriander & cumin
salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the sauce
Greek style natural yogurt
concentrated mint sauce
Pinch of sugar
Place the couscous in a bowl and pour over the water. Allow to stand for about 20 minutes or until the water has been absorbed.
Once the water has been absorbed, sprinkle the spices over the couscous and mix together with a fork.
Add the lamb and onion, season well and knead together until well combined.
Divide the mixture into eight, and shape into tapered sausage shape around skewers.
Cook under a preheated grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning frequently until cooked through.
Meanwhile to make the sauce, squeeze out the excess vinegar from the mint sauce and stir the mint into the yogurt along with the sugar.
Serve the kebabs with the mint sauce spooned over. Accompany with a mixed salad and pitta bread.
Freeze: un-cooked for up to 3 months
