This Indian-inspired lamb recipe is the perfect dish to serve as part of a healthy weekend feast. With a garlic and lemon marinade and refreshing coriander and mint sauce with green chilli heat, it's a warming and delicious Indian recipe.

Put the lamb in a mixing bowl and set aside. In a food processor, whizz the garlic, ginger, yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder or garam masala, and a little seasoning to make a smooth marinade. Pour over the lamb, then cover and chill for at least 1 hour or for up to 12 hours. Allow to come to room temperature before continuing with the recipe.

While the lamb comes to room temperature, prepare the sauce. In a food processor, whizz the herbs, yogurt, chilli, sugar and shallot to a purée. Season to taste and transfer to a small serving bowl.

Heat a griddle pan on the hob until smoking hot. Wipe the lamb with kitchen paper to remove the marinade, then season and thread onto 6 skewers. Drizzle with the oil to prevent them from sticking, then add to the griddle pan. Grill for 3-4 minutes each side (for medium meat). Remove to a plate, cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes.

Drizzle a little herb sauce over the kebabs and serve the remaining on the side, along with the mango chutney and naan or roti (if using), for everyone to help themselves.

Tip: Soaking wooden skewers in water for at least 15 minutes before cooking will stop them scorching on the griddle.
