Skewered Barbecued Lamb - Hussaini Kebab


Serves 6
2 kg (4 lb) leg of lamb, boned
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
11/2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely ground almonds
2 tablespoons yoghurt 1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin Salt to taste
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice


Trim lamb, discarding excess fat. Any sinewy bits may be saved for stock or for adding to a curry. Cut the lean meat into 2.5 cm (1 inch) cubes and put into a large howl. Combine all the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Marinate lamb in the mixture, kneading the spices well into the meat. Cover and leave for 2 or 3 hours, or refrigerate and leave for as long as 4 days. Thread 4 or 5 pieces of meat on each skewer and barbecue over glowing coals or under a preheated griller until crisp and brown all over, turning to ensure lamb is well cooked. Serve with parathas and Indian sas (sauce) which is given above.
