Woman's Weekly recipe Perfect for cooking on the BBQ or grill, these spicy Tandoori lamb skewers are tender, succulent and full of flavour. Garnished with fresh mint, these flavoursome packed skewers are so simple to make and are a great way of adding immense flavour to lamb.

  1. Tip the lamb into a freezer bag and add the curry paste, yogurt and lemon juice. Seal the bag, then massage it to coat the lamb in the other ingredients. Leave to marinate for at least 30 mins, or preferably overnight.
  2. Thread the meat alternately with green pepper onto skewers. Cook on a griddle pan or under a hot grill at a moderate heat for 10-15 mins, turning them occasionally, until the lamb is cooked to your liking.
  3. Serve the kebabs with lemon wedges and mint.
