    1 x 465g pack lamb mince

    1½ x tsp paprika

    1½ x tsp garlic granules

    1 x tsp dried oregano

    1 ½ x tsp cumin



    200g yoghurt

    ½ Cucumber

    4g Fresh mint

    ½ tsp garlic granules


    To serve

    4 x wholemeal pitta breads

    1 x large carrot

    ½ cucumber

    Sea salt and black pepper


    Mix the mince, paprika, cumin, garlic granules and oregano together in a bowl, season with some salt and pepper and mix well.

    On a clean board, make the mince into a block – patting it down well so you don’t have any air inside, and it’s a solid oblong brick shape.



    Cook on high in a slow cooker for 3 hours



    Preheat your oven to 200c/400f/Gas Mark 6

    Wrap the mince completely in some tin foil and roast for 60mins.


    To make the Tzatizki finely dice the cucumber. Finely chop the mint and mix with the yoghurt, garlic granules and the cucumber.

    Warm the pittas

    Thinly slice the lamb lengthways into strips

    Split open the pittas

    Stuff them with the sliced doner meat, carrot ribbons some thinly sliced cucumber – and serve alongside the tzatziki.
