Quick and easy spiced lamb skewers taste delicious with a refreshing tomato and mint salsa.
1 cup plain reduced-fat Greek-style yoghurt
1/4 cup korma curry paste
800g lamb leg steaks, cubed
olive oil cooking spray
warmed mini naan breads, to serve
Tomato and mint salsa
3 tomatoes, deseeded, chopped
1 Lebanese cucumber, deseeded, chopped
1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
Combine yoghurt and curry paste in a ceramic dish. Season with salt and pepper. Add lamb. Stir to coat. Cover. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, if time permits. Thread meat onto skewers.
Make tomato and mint salsa: Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, cucumber, onion, mint and vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Heat a greased barbecue plate or chargrill over medium-high heat. Spray skewers with oil. Cook skewers, turning occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Serve lamb with salsa and naan breads.
