Baharat griddled-lamb flatbreads are a sophisticated, spicy barbecue dish the whole family will enjoy. Don't skip the yogurt sauce, it's a perfect match.
Baharat is a Middle Eastern spice blend made up of ground black peppercorns, ground coriander, cumin, allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, paprika, and nutmeg. It’s a fantastic way of adding an instant Lebanese taste to a dish like these griddled lamb flatbreads. It’s also commonly used in Turkish and Greek cooking to add flavour to fish, vegetables and other meat. Our Baharat griddled-lamb can also be eaten “a la kebab”, (on the skewers) for a plate free option. Try serving them alongside our Middle Eastern salad. Using a tender cut of lamb, such as loin fillet, ensures despite cooking in a high temperature the lamb doesn’t turn tough and stays succulent. However if you can’t find loin, diced leg is also a good option.
- 1tbsp baharat spice mix
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 400g lamb loin fillet
- 2 small red onions, peeled and cut into 8 chunks
- 1 aubergine, cut into bite sized pieces
- 4 flatbreads or pitta
- 1 pomegranate, seeds scooped out
- pickled gherkins, to serve
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
For the yoghurt topping:
- 2tbsp tahini
- 8tbsp natural yoghurt
- 2tsp summac
- 10g dill, finely chopped, plus extra to garnish
- zest of 1 lemon
- 5g mint, leaves chopped
You will also need:
- 6 wooden skewers, soaked in water
- Heat the BBQ. Mix the spice and 2tbsp olive oil in a large bowl, toss through the lamb, red onion and aubergine then feed onto the skewers. Cook the skewers for 5 mins turning regularly. Add the flatbreads to the grill for the final min to warm.
- Mix the ingredients for the yogurt topping together.
- Once cooked pull the lamb and veg off the skewer and pile onto the flatbreads, spoon over the yoghurt and top with the pomegranate, pickles and extra dill. Serve with lemon wedges. To cook in the kitchen put the skewers under a hot grill for the same time.

Lamb loin is fantastic as it’s amazingly tender, however if you can’t find loin you could you use diced lamb leg instead which is easy to come by at the supermarket.
