Method

1.  Preheat oven to 180ºC fan bake and line an oven tray with baking paper.

2.  MAKE FLATBREAD DOUGH

Gently heat butter and milk in a medium saucepan. When butter has melted, remove from heat and stir in flour and salt. Tip dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for a few minutes until smooth. Wrap the ball of dough in plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes while you prepare the rest of the meal.

3.  MAKE YOGHURT SAUCE

Dice Tiny Q cucumbers, roughly chop coriander and crush garlic. Combine with yoghurt, lemon juice and sugar, season with salt and pepper and stir well. Set aside.

4.  MAKE KOFTAS

Finely dice onion and crush garlic. Combine with lamb, paprika, oregano and cumin. Season with salt and pepper and mix well to combine. Shape mixture into 8 sausage shapes and thread onto individual skewers. Place on tray and bake for 20 minutes.

5. Unwrap flatbread dough and cut into 4 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each one out into a large circle about 2-3mm thick.

7.  Add olive oil to the pan and cook one of the flatbreads, for 1-2 minutes on each side. When it puffs up, press down with a spatula. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining flatbreads.

9. Spread flatbreads, top with Tiny Q cucumber slices or halves  and koftas. Drizzle with yoghurt sauce. Eat with a knife and fork or roll into kebabs.
