Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. In a chopper or food processor add the onions, garlic and chickpeas. Blitz until fine but not liquified.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the onion mixture, lamb mince and remaining kebab ingredients. Mix well to combine. Place in the fridge until ready to cook.
  3. When ready to cook shape and thread the lamb mixture tightly around a flat sided skewer or alternatively shape into long sausage shapes. Cook on a BBQ or grill until cooked through, 25-30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan or cast iron griddle for the BBQ with oil and fry the onions and peppers until softened a little and charred a little around the edges. Season to taste and add to a heated sizzling platter or warmed plate.

Make ahead

The kebab mixture can be prepared a day ahead. I have made ahead the onions and peppers and re-heated in the microwave successfully.
