Yes, you read that correctly, healthy lamb kebabs and they even taste amazing. Whilst most people tend to eat kebabs drunk after a night out I actually enjoy eating them sober with chilli sauce and chips. My mum also liked eating them but once she realised how unhealthy they were she quickly found a recipe which means they are a lot healthier. I’ve adapted the recipe so it’s not fully stolen and given it a student easy explanation so enjoy! Serves 1

All you need is 

250g lamb mince

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp cumin

Pinch salt and pepper

1/2 tsp garlic

1/2 finely chopped onion

To make it just

In a bowl mix all the ingredients together with you hands. You will need to squish the meat a lot to make it as soft as possible.

Once it’s all mixed get some cling film and lay it on the side and dust with flour.

Place a ball of the mince mix in the centre of the cling film and fold the top over.

With a rolling pin roll the mixture out so it’s very very thin.

In a pan fry the thin bits of mince, as you’re frying them using a spatula pat down the mince so it stays fairly thin.

Serve with a warm pita bread, salad and a sauce of your choice.

The results are in

These were super quick to make, the only time consuming process was doing some potatoes to have with it! The meat tasted great exactly like what you’d expect if you brought a kebab.

Although I did use the spatula to try to keep the mixture thin it did thicken quite a bit, in future I need to ensure I roll out the mixture incredibly thin before I fry it.

Overall, I would give this dish a very high rating, although lamb mince is slightly more expensive than beef I do feel it’s worth it, however, I will look into experimenting with beef mince to see if it makes a difference.
