Top tip: For extra spice, serve with pickled chillies to add an authentic Greek touch to your pitta meal.

Method

  1. Place the minced lamb in a bowl and add the other ingredients and mix well. Divide the mixture into 12 and shape each into a ball.
  2. Thread the balls onto skewers. Cook the lamb balls under a hot grill for 10-15 mins, turning them occasionally so they cook through.
  3. To make the dressing: Tip the yogurt into a bowl and stir in the cucumber and seasoning.
  4. Warm the pitta bread before serving. Slit open the bread and fill each with 3 balls of lamb and spoon on some of the dressing. Alternatively, serve the lamb still on the skewers with the pitta bread and dressing. (Not suitable for freezing).
