Pre-heat oven to 450. A super tasty journey for your guests tastes buds in under 15mins…
- 1lb ground Lamb
- 1/2 white onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 2 to 3 inches of thinly sliced cucumber (don't cut them too thin, you want a little crispiness in every bite).
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cracked pepper
- Crushed chilli oil (to taste)
- 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
- 2 Tbsp fresh torn mint
In a food processor add onion and garlic and pulse until finely minced, then add lamb, cumin, salt/pepper and continue for a few seconds until combined. Remove and roll into balls.
In a fry pan over medium heat add a healthy splash of olive, fry balls gently, turn and rolling occasionally until golden on the outside, remove and add to a parchment lined baking tray and roast for 5 to 7 minutes.
Smear yoghurt on your platter, add lamb balls, sliced cucumber, drizzle with crushed chilli oil (or your favourite chilli oil/sauce) & fresh mint.
