- 4" bamboo skewers
- microwave-safe bowl
- small bowl
- 1 seedless English cucumber, grated and drained
- 2 cups 2% (or higher) yogurt
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 2 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
- 1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
- 1 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
- 1 Tbsp ground coriander seeds
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1.5 lbs little potatoes
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 lbs ground lamb
Make the Raita Sauce
Place grated cucumber in a strainer and press the water out. Mix cucumbers with all the rest of raita sauce ingredients. Put aside in the refrigerator (you can make the sauce up to one day in advance).
Make the Brochettes
Preheat grill to high temperature
Put little potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl, cook for five minutes on high. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Divide this mix by adding one tablespoon of spices and one tablespoon of olive oil in the cooked potatoes.
In a different bowl, put the rest of the spices with the ground lamb meat, and mix well. Form meat into little balls, approximately the same size of the Creamer potatoes. Put aside.
Assemble the brochettes, by alternating two meat balls, and two potatoes per skewer.
Cook brochettes on preheated grill for three minutes on each side (lower temperature when cooking).
Serve with the raita sauce as a delicious appetizer!
