Lamb Masala Kebabs

By the wlr team

Another quick and easy Indian recipe, but you do need to allow for marinating time. Well worth it as the meat will be tender and bursting with flavour when it’s done. Serve as a starter (would make six portions) with the Cucumber and Mint Raita, or have as a very satisfying main course with the Indian Vegetable Curry.
