  • 400 g steak mince
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 slice of stale bread
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 chili pepper ( optional )
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp mix spice
  • 1 or 2 tsp sesame oil
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 pitta bread
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed ( optional )
  • Half a tub about 250 g natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of paprika

First put the onion, garlic and bread pieces in a food processor and pulse it a few times. Then add mince, chilli, oil, spices, salt and pepper and mix it well to bind it all together. Shape them lengthwise on to the skewers and grill or cook them on the griddle until all browned and ready to serve. Brush the kebabs with oil during cooking. In the meantime heat the pitta bread in the toaster or in a non stick pan to warm it. Cut the bread and place it on a serving plate. Mix crushed garlic with yogurt and pour over the pitta bread. Then arrange the kebabs over the yogurt. Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan, add paprika and drizzle over the kebab just before serving. Serves 4.
