 Ingredients List

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt (kosher)
  • 3 tablespoons grated onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh
  • parsley
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 tablespoon ground
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black
  • pepper
  • 28 bamboo skewers, soaked in
  • water for 30 minutes


1. Mash the garlic into a paste using a mortar and pestle or the flat side of a chef's knife on your cutting board. Combined with the salt. Mix the garlic paste into the lamb along with the onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne pepper and pepper in a mixing bowl until well blended.
2. Form the mixture into 28 balls. Form each ball around the tip of a skewer, flattening into a 2 inch oval; repeat with the remaining skewers. Place the kebabs onto a baking sheet, cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or up to 12 hours.
3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
4. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the lamb has cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 6 minutes for medium.
5) Serve with yogurt, flat bread, lettuce, tomato and cucumber.
