  • 1 pound of lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon of ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a large bowl, combine the minced garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, turmeric, cinnamon, salt, black pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt, and cilantro. Mix well to create a marinade.
  2. Add the lamb cubes to the marinade and toss until they are evenly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results. This will allow the flavors to penetrate the meat and make it more tender.
  3. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill.
  4. Preheat your grill or barbecue to medium-high heat.
  5. Thread the marinated lamb cubes onto the skewers, leaving a small space between each piece to ensure even cooking.
  6. Place the kebabs on the preheated grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the lamb is cooked to your desired level of doneness. Turn the kebabs occasionally to ensure they cook evenly.
  7. Once cooked, remove the kebabs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the juices to redistribute and make the meat even more tender.
  8. Serve the Arabian Spiced Lamb Kebabs with a side of fluffy couscous, a fresh salad, and a dollop of tzatziki sauce for a complete Middle Eastern feast.
