    This was on gastronomy economy this evening, and it seems fabulous and if doesnt seem that it will have two many syns...

    I think the amount would serve 2 hungry bunnies and 4 not so hungry ones :)

    The syn value of the Tahini - is 4.5pts for a tablespoon
    A pitta is 5 syns, but i was considering using my HEb or a wrap which is 4.5 depending on where you get them from!

    also i wont use chilli sauce, tooooo spicy for me :)

    I'm going to try it at the weekend. will let you know how it goes!

    Ingredients


    For the spiced lamb
    2 garlic cloves, peeled, finely chopped
    ¾ tsp ground cumin
    600g/1lb 5oz lamb leg meat, cut into 3cm/1¼in cubes
    pinch salt

    For the yoghurt sauce
    150g/5oz Greek-style yoghurt
    1 tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
    handful fresh mint leaves, chopped
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, peeled, finely chopped
    pinch salt
    For the flatbreads
    4 x 20cm/8in ready-made flatbreads

    To serve
    200g/7oz red or white cabbage, core removed, thinly shredded
    dash ready-made chilli sauce
    2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
    ½ red onion, peeled, thinly sliced
    4 dill pickles, thickly sliced
    pickled chillies, to taste (optional)
    1-2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

    Method

    1. For the spiced lamb, in a large bowl, mix together the garlic and cumin until well combined. Add the cubes of lamb leg to the spice mixture and stir until completely coated. Set aside for at least two hours, or chill in the fridge overnight.
    2. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat until smoking hot. Add the coated lamb cubes to the hot pan, in batches, and season, to taste, with salt. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown griddle marks appear on both sides of the meat cubes and the lamb is cooked to your liking. Remove the lamb from the pan and set aside (keep warm). Repeat the process with the remaining coated lamb cubes.

    3. Meanwhile, for the yoghurt sauce, in a bowl, mix together all of the yoghurt sauce ingredients until well combined.
    4. Meanwhile, for the flatbreads, heat a separate griddle pan over a low heat. Cook each flatbread, one at a time, for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until warmed through.
    5. To serve, spoon a dollop of the yoghurt sauce into the centre of each flatbread. Pile a little of the cabbage on top of each flatbread, then drizzle over the chilli sauce. Place two slices of tomato and onion on top, then sprinkle over the dill pickle slices. Add the cubes of lamb, then sprinkle over the pickled chillies. Squeeze over the lemon juice, then fold the edges of the kebab over the filling.

    Sounds lovely, I didn't get to see this last night, must watch it on catchup.
    Let us know how it goes - you won't be able to use a b choice for flat breads or pitta though, not enough fibre to qualify! Gotta syn them I'm afraid.

    I too saw this and thought how good it looks!

    They did say about doing the meat on kebab scewers with other veg and then I thought about either serving them egg fried rice or potato wedges. That way it would save the syns from the pitta. I would still make the sauce though as that sounds soooo good!

    I am going to do these Saturday with friends coming over so I will update you all then!!
