Lamb Kebabs with Spiced Rice

We love to mix and match flavours, and nothing beats the sweet and savoury combo - it's like getting the best of both worlds! 

Serves: 2


450 grams lamb steak
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp chilli sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoon Cinnamon Butter, melted
Salt and pepper
1 red onion
1 carrot
1 tablespoon oil


1 cup cooked basmati rice
½ onion, chopped
3 tablespoon cinnamon butter
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
Salt and pepper


Melt the butter and add the garlic, chilli, lemon juice, spices and season. Cut the lamb into chunks and toss in the butter-spice mixture.  

Peel the carrot and slice it into very thin slices lengthways using a mandolin. Peel the onion and cut it into chunks. 

Thread the meat, folded carrot slices and onion chunks onto 4 skewers in alternate rows. 

Leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Heat the oil in a fry pan and cook each side for 2-3 minutes until cooked to your liking.  Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Melt the butter in a small fry pan. Add the onion and cook on a low heat until soft. Add the spices and cook for another 2 minutes.

Add the cooked rice and 1-2 tablespoons of water and stir around until the rice is coated in spices and heated through.

To Finish
Spoon the rice onto a serving plate and top with the lamb kebabs. Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt and fresh coriander if desired.
