 London is a melting pot of cultures. Not only do you get to know people from all over the world, but you also get to taste a range of cuisines.

This recipe is one of my favourite kind of Turkish kebabs that has mild spices and uses an abundance of Lemon zest and mint with yoghurt to make the lamb chops really soft and melt in the mouth delicious.

You could also use the same recipe to make chicken kebabs or soya chunks,tofu or even paneer for a vegetarian option.

It takes next to no time to make and is extremely popular at parties.

In a bowl,mix all the ingredients  for the marinade into the yoghurt and give a good mix.

I used my lovely Judge Yoghurt maker to make the yoghurt.

Dip each lamb chop into the mixture, turn over, coating well on all sides and then transfer to a ziplock bag.

Keep this ziplock bag away in the fridge where it can sit from 2- 24 hours.

Then pop it on to your lovely roasting tray and bake at 180C for 25 minutes. Alternatively you could grill it or fry it on the pan or just BBQ it!


I used my fantastic new Hard Anodised roasting tray from Stellar to make this lovely recipe.

This is a lovely, sturdy large 3 Roasting Tray With Handle. The nicest part about the design is that the handles are towards the inside rather than jutting gout- saves precious shelf space. Handles on a roasting pan are a must for me because it is incredibly difficult to get stuff out of the oven if it doesn’t have handles.


This pan comes with the Stellar Lifetime Guarantee and promises not to rust.

It  can be used under the grill or directly on the hob. How versatile!


Serve with sliced onion and some lovely bread!
