Method

In a medium bowl, combine lamb, 1/2 cup of the yogurt, cilantro, onion, mint and seasoning.

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 at least 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 1/4 cup 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.
