Spiced grilled lamb skewers

Spiced grilled lamb skewers

Ingredients

  • 900 g boned leg of lamb, cut into 2cm in cubes

For the marinade

  • 85 g plain yogurt
  • 25 g ginger
  • 5 fat garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon grease
  • 2 tsp red white wine vinegar
  • 1 rounded tsp garam masala
  • 1 rounded tsp ground cumin

Approach

  • ACTION 1

    Blend all the marinade components until smooth, and season with 1 tsp salt and some black pepper. Include the lamb, mix well, cover and put in the refrigerator to marinade for as long as possible; overnight is finest.

  • ACTION 2

    When ready to prepare, soak 8 wood skewers in water for 10 mins and heat a barbecue to medium-high, or heat your grill and line a baking tray with foil. Thread the lamb onto the skewers, about 4 pieces on each. Place on oiled racks of the barbecue and cook for 12-14 minutes, turning typically, or up until charred in places and prepared right through. If you’re barbecuing the skewers, cook for 10-12 mins.
