Lamb pita kebabs with yoghurt and dill dressing

Serves 3-4


  • 500 grams Farmer’s Choice lamb mince
  • 1 packet ready-made pita bread
  • 1 cubed onion
  • 3 grated cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

For the dressing:

  • 1 cup natural yoghurt
  • Fresh chopped dill/ coriander
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 grated cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Start by mixing the yoghurt, dill,  garlic, olive oil and set aside.
  2. Combine lamb, spices, coriander, onions, garlic and salt in a bowl. Mix in curry powder and black pepper.
  3. Shape the meat around into finger-like pieces, pressing little indents into the meat as you go.
  4. Grill the kebabs until golden and cooked through. Brush honey and soy sauce over the kebabs and grill for a few more minutes. Warm your pitas next to them for 30 seconds. Slice onion and tomato and mix with salad.
  5. Transfer the pitas to plates and top each with the salad, followed by kebabs, and a dollop of yoghurt dressing.
