  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 500 grams lamb back-strap diced small
  • 1 teaspoon Bharat/7-spice blend
  • salt to season
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • ⅓ cup of lemon juice

Notes from Rouba

  • Fresh lemon juice is key to this recipe.
  • Leftover lamb bites are perfect for serving over hummus.
  • If the garlic cloves are small, add 1 or 2 extra.


Step 1.

To make the garlic sauce, combine the crushed garlic and lemon juice and set aside.

Step 2.

Cut the lamb into 2-3 cm pieces. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the lamb but don’t overcrowd the frying pan or the meat will steam, so you may have to work in batches depending on the size of your pan. Cook for approximately 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the lamb bites are golden brown and the juice has mostly evaporated. Repeat with the remaining lamb if needed.

Step 3.

Place all the meat back into the frying pan (if you fried in batches). Season with salt and Bharat/ 7 spice blend. Pour over the garlic and lemon sauce and stir through. Immediately remove from heat.
