I love good food but I also love dirty food! Donner meat, spam, pork scratchings.. if it tastes good I like it – no food snobbery with me.
I do like a dirty donner kebab now and then and I don’t even have to be drunk! but there is always the worry of what you are eating and how much fat is in it so I decided to make my own version that does not include “eyeballs and arseholes” as someone one told me was in donner meat 😉 This way I know what I am eating and it tastes just as good!
This version I made on Friday night was a bit too meat like though (which is a good thing really!!) to make it a bit more donner like you might want to add some blended chick peas – which I will explain later.
To make donner meat for 2 large kebabs on naan or 4 small donners on pitta!
1 packet of Lamb mince
1 tsp Oregano
2 tsp plain flour
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt.
If you want to create a more artificial texture of meat..1/2 tin of chick peas blended to a paste.
Put all the spices in a bowl, add the lamb mince and squidge it all together. Add the chick pea paste if using.
Squash it all down into a loaf tin like you are making a meatloaf
Bake in the oven at 180 for around 1 hour.
Check if the meat is done in the middle by just cutting it in half as you will be slicing it all up anyway.
Let the meat cool a little and then slice into the thinnest slices you can.
Serve on a naan or in a pitta with shredded cabbage, sliced onions, tomatoes, yoghurt and mint sauce and chilli sauce!
I also added some fresh coriander as I have realised after starting this blog that I add it to everything!
