  • 500 gram lamb mince

  • 2 tspn ground cumin
  • 1 tspn ground coriander

  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander chopped
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1 small lemon
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Soak the wooden skewers in some water for 30 minutes. In a large bowl mix the lamb mince with all the other ingredients. Squeeze in the juice of one small lemon and mix well
  • Using damp hands, divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and shape it around the skewers
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a pan and fry the lamb kebabs, about 4-5 minutes on each side
  • Serve with naan bread and a yogurt dip with a crunchy salad


  1. You can make the kebabs without skewers. Roll them into long sausage like shapes
  2. If you cannot handle the heat you can leave out the chilli
  3. Although I cooked mine on the stovetop you can cook them under a hot grill
