Preparation & Cooking
Trim any fat and cartilage from lamb. Cut into 3cm cubes.
Place prepared chillis, garlic, ginger and almonds in a food processor; mix until finely chopped. Add curry powder, 3 tablespoons of water and yoghurt; mix to creamy consistency.
Stir lamb and curry mixture in a bowl until lamb is well coated. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or longer for a stronger curry flavour.
Spray 8 small skewers with a light coating of vegetable or olive oil cooking spray. Thread lamb cubes onto the oiled skewers.
Preheat a grill to high, or prepare a hot barbecue. Lightly grease the grill rack. Alternatively, spray the barbercue rack with vegetable or olive oil cooking spray.
Grill kebabs about 5cm from heat, turning frequently with tongs and brushing with marinade for about 8 to 10 minutes. If barbecuing, cook for 6 to 8 minutes, as described for grilling.
Serve kebabs immediately, garnished with coriander.

Cook's Tips

Spray metal skewers lightly with vegetable or olive oil cooking spray before threading meat. It is then easier to remove the meat, particularly if barbecued.

Marinating allows the flavour of the marinade ingredients to penetrate the lamb. Marinate for at least 1 hour (or overnight), coverred, in the refrigerator.
