Ingredients

1tbsp sunflower oil
1 medium onion, peeled and very finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
½tsp hot chilli powder
400g lean lamb mince
2tsp harissa paste
10 ready-to-eat apricots, finely chopped
½tsp ground cinnamon
½tsp flaked sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 tesco plain pitta breads, split
shredded baby gem lettuce, to serve
thinly sliced red onion, to serve
sliced tomatoes, to serve
150g free from natural soya yogurt
7g fresh mint, leaves finely chopped

Heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan, add the onion and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes or until softened, stirring regularly. Add the garlic and chilli powder and cook for a further minute, stirring. Tip into a large bowl and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Add the minced lamb, harissa paste, apricots, cinnamon and salt to the cooled onion and garlic. Season with lots of freshly ground black pepper and mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Divide the mixture into 12 portions and roll into balls. Push three balls onto a long metal skewer leaving 1cm between each ball. Repeat with three more skewers and the remaining balls to make four kofta skewers in total. Preheat the grill to its hottest setting. Place the skewers onto a rack over a grill pan lined with foil. Cook under the grill for 10-12 minutes, turning every few minutes, until the lamb is nicely browned and cooked through. While the koftas are cooking, mix all the ingredients for the herb sauce together in a small bowl.

Put the koftas to one side. Warm the pitta breads on a baking tray under the grill for 1-2 minutes on each side. Open out and fill with shredded lettuce, sliced red onion and tomatoes. Divide the koftas between the warmed pitta breads. Spoon over the herb sauce and serve.

To Cook 0:50
INGREDIENTS 16
DIFFICULTY EASY
SERVINGS 6

Ingredients 


1.5kg boned lamb shoulder
2 teaspoons allspice
1/3 cup olive oil
1 baby cos lettuce heart, trimmed, leaves separated
400g tomato medley mix, halved
1 Lebanese cucumber, halved, sliced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves

Lebanese garlic sauce 


6 garlic cloves, peeled, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 egg white
1 cup rice bran oil
2 tablespoons iced water

Method

Step 1
Place lamb in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Add allspice and 1/4 cup oil. Rub to coat lamb all over. Cover. Refrigerate for 2 hours, if time permits.

Step 2
Make Lebanese garlic sauce: Place garlic, salt and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a food processor. Process, scraping down sides often, until garlic is finely chopped. Add egg white. Process until smooth. With motor operating, gradually add half the oil in a slow steady stream. Then gradually add remaining lemon juice in a slow steady stream, followed by remaining oil. Gradually add iced water. Process until mixture is white and fluffy. Spoon into a bowl. Cover. Refrigerate until required.

Step 3
Preheat a barbecue chargrill (with hood) on medium-low. Cook lamb, fat-side down, for 15 minutes. Turn lamb. Cook, with barbecue hood closed, for 30 to 35 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil. Stand for 10 minutes.

Step 5
Slice lamb. Serve with salad, Lebanese bread and garlic sauce.

 Notes

Cook's note: The garlic sauce makes double the amount you'll need, but can't be halved because of the egg white.

Lebanese garlic sauce: This Lebanese garlic sauce is known as toum, the Arabic word for garlic. It's particularly good with chicken, but also works with meat and vegetables.

Preparation time excludes 2 hours refrigeration time.
