Lamb kebabs with raita

These tasty kebabs are marinated in yoghurt and served with raita, a cucumber yoghurt sauce. To avoid moderate amines, you can use homemade quark (see other recipe, watered down if necessary) or soy yoghurt if also avoiding dairy.

2 cloves garlic, crushed
salt to taste, preferably iodised
2 x 200g tubs plain yoghurt (moderate amines, not for the strict elimination diet)
500g diced lamb
8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 15 minutes
1 small Lebanese cucumber, thickly peeled and finely chopped (optional, mod salicylates, not for the strict elimination diet - chives would be a suitable alternative)

Combine half the garlic, salt and 1 tub yoghurt in a bowl and toss in the lamb cubes until coated. Thread onto eight wooden skewers. Combine remaining yoghurt and garlic with the cucumber to make a raita side dish. Grill or BBQ skewers until done. Serve with raita, salad and Swedish rotmos or rice. Serves 4.- thanks to Jen
