Ingredients

  • 1kg lean lamb, such as trimmed shoulder or leg, cubed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp black onion (nigella) seeds

  • 200g tub tzatziki, 4 warm flatbreads and mixed salad, to serve

Method

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the lamb, olive oil, cumin, cinnamon, sugar, garlic, seeds and some salt and pepper. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Thread the lamb, lemons and chillies onto 14 skewers and grill under a high heat for 5-8 minutes, turning until browned but still a little pink in the centre.
