Method: 
In a medium bowl, combine lamb, 1/2 cup of the yogurt, cilantro, onion, mint, and seasoning into a medium bowl. Mix to combine, then divide into 8 balls. Shape each ball into a long sausage shape and slide skewers through the center, lengthwise (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before assembling.). Flatten slightly, transfer to a dish, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Brush lamb with oil and cook about 10 minutes, turning to brown all sides. While lamb is grilling, mix together remaining yogurt, tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Thin with water to make a smooth, slightly thick sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Serve lamb with grilled pita or flat bread, drizzled with sauce.
