Lamb kebabs

  1. Place the onion, yoghurt, garlic, spices, lemon juice and salt into a food processor, blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the marinade over the lamb pieces and mix well to coat. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat the griddle plate on medium–high heat, induction setting 7, for 7 minutes.
  4. Remove the lamb pieces from the marinade and thread onto the skewers. Lightly oil the kebabs.
  5. Place the kebabs onto the griddle plate and cook, turning often, for 10 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.

Sumac pickled onion

  1. Place the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and sumac into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, induction setting 6, or until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the onion and leave to pickle for at least 30 minutes. Drain the liquid before serving.

Pistachio and raisin bulgur salad

  3. Combine the bulgur and pistachios with remaining ingredients in a large bowl, season to taste.

Hints and tips

  • Lamb rump or shoulder can be used as an alternative to lamb leg.
  • Make your own pita using the recipe found on our Miele Experience website.
  • Yoghurt contains lactic acid which slowly tenderizes the meat during the overnight marinade.
  • The pickled onions can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for weeks.
