prep: 30 mins cook: 10 mins additional: 1 hr 30 mins total: 1 hr 70 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

½ teaspoon ground coriander

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 pinch cayenne pepper

1 pinch ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons Aleppo chile flakes

1 teaspoon ground sumac (Optional)


Combine cumin, coriander, Aleppo chile flakes, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well to combine. Use your spoon to push off about 1/3 of the spice blend to the side.

Place ground lamb in a mixing bowl and add 2/3 of the spice blend along with 2 tablespoons cold water. Mix with by hand until thoroughly combined. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

While meat is chilling, place bamboo skewers in water to soak for 1 hour.

Remove meat from the refrigerator and roll into 8 equal-sized meatballs using slightly damp hands. Skewer each meatball through the center and shape into an oval, about 3 inches long. Use your fingers to taper each end of the kabob down to a point where it meets the skewer. Place on a plate and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes, or until ready to grill.

Whisk Greek yogurt, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup water together in a bowl until smooth and combined. Refrigerate until serving.

Stir sumac into the remaining 1/3 spice blend. Remove kabobs from the refrigerator and sprinkle spices on top.

Preheat an outdoor charcoal grill to medium-high heat.

Grill kabobs over charcoal, turning occasionally, until browned and firm, 10 to 12 minutes total. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a kabob should read at least 135 degrees F (57 degrees C). Serve with yogurt sauce.
