This recipe was created by Adrian as a nod to one of his chef friend’s favourite takeaways. He wanted to create something as tasty for them, but with more fresh vegetables and less fat and salt. The key ingredients are lamb mince, cumin, garlic powder and coriander. Whatever vegetables, bread or sauce that you add to the recipe is up to preference. Adrian recommends a garlic and chive mayo as an accompaniment, but this can be swapped with Greek yoghurt as a healthier alternative.
