Serves: 2

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


250 g minced lamb
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 naan breads
200 g hummus
2 tablespoons mint leaves
1 shredded gem lettuce


Heat a frying pan until hot, add the minced lamb and fry for about 10 minutes until golden brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Add the cinnamon and pine nuts and cook for a further 1 minute. Remove the lamb from the heat.

Warm the naan breads. Place them on a board and, using a rolling pin, firmly roll to flatten.

Mix the hummus with half the mint leaves, then spread in a thick layer over the naans. Spoon in the crispy lamb, then scatter over the shredded lettuce (optional) and the remaining mint leaves. Tightly roll up, cut in half and serve wrapped in foil.
