Tandoori Lamb Wrap

Ingredients for 5 servings

For the marinade:
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ small onion, roughly chopped
½ tsp ground fennel seeds
½ tsp red chilli powder, or to taste
1 tsp salt, or to taste
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves
2 tsp each garam masala and ground cumin
2 tsp lemon juice
2.5 cm/1in piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
150 ml/5fl oz Greek-style yoghurt

For the lamb:
2 tbsp melted butter, for basting
400 g/14oz lamb (leg meat is ideal), bones removed, cut into 2cm/1in cubes and pierced with a fork

To serve:
½ onion, finely sliced
1 Little Gem lettuce, finely sliced
2 tomatoes, finely sliced
5 ready-made flour tortillas, wrapped in foil and placed in the oven for the last five minutes of cooking
10 wooden skewers, soaked in water for half an hour
100 ml/3½fl oz green chutney, mixed with 3 tbsp yoghurt, to serve


Place all the marinade ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and stir in the lamb cubes. Mix well and leave to marinate in the fridge for as long as possible, preferably overnight. Bring back to room temperature an hour before cooking.

Preheat the grill to medium. Thread the lamb cubes onto the skewers leaving a space between each piece and place under the grill. Cook for around 5-6 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until tender. Alternatively, cook in an oven preheated to 200C/400F/Gas 6 for eight minutes. Baste with the melted butter and cook for another minute or two for slightly pink meat, or longer if you want the lamb well done.

Divide the lamb pieces into five equal portions and place each portion in the centre of a warmed tortilla.
Top with a handful of the sliced vegetables and a spoonful of chutney. Roll up and serve.
