I had to make some platters for my friend the past week so I made some mini Spicy Indian Lamb Kebabs for her. My kids thought they were delicious as I gave them a little taste of the extras I had. I promised to make them more so I had to keep to my word. So today Spicy Indian Lamb Kebabs it was with some naan bread, mint chutney and a crunchy salad. They were in heaven.

Today I had a coffee date with my girlfriends. So these Kebabs were perfect to prep ahead before I left home.  We go out for coffee on all our birthdays but this year I couldn’t do it on my birthday or soon after. So it had to wait but was so worth it. We love our coffee dates and our birthday coffees have become a little tradition of ours.

It also gives us a chance to catchup on our lives and spend some uninterrupted time together. Every girl needs great girlfriends and getting together with them is the best therapy.  I am so lucky that I am blessed with good friends. So I was up at the crack of dawn prepping everything for my Kebabs so when I got home I could feed my hungry kids.

I don’t eat lamb, as you would know from my other posts. However, I do have a little taste just to check if the flavours are right. I can’t exactly post a recipe that I haven’t tasted. But I have also made these in the past to know that it does taste good. Preparation takes a few minutes and it really cooks in no time at all. Delicious lamb dipped in a minty chutney with a hint of chilli, yum!


It would have been great to make a little chilli dip too but I had time constraints. Next time I will work on that chilli dip, promise. These kebabs make great appetizers too if they are made into mini ones.

If you do try my recipe please drop me a comment, I love hearing from you!
