Lemongrass Lamb Kebab

Two of my favourite ingredients in this Lemongrass Lamb Kebab. Lemongrass of course (Lemongrass Cordial) I think must trend further far in front because they grow like your business, my business and everybody's business in my garden. So effortlessly actually (Thai Style Fried Chicken & Nasi Ulam/Herbs Rice). I just need to plunge one stick anywhere in my tiny plot of garden, they will multiple superbly within time (Nasi Dagang, Assam Curry Fish & Curry Chicken Noodle). Therefore, I will be silly me if I don't happily pull the lemongrass for my dishes (Lemongrass Chilli Prawns & Thai Massaman Lamb Curry). Don't you agree? I bet you do. Lamb too is a favourite, but with this age thing and red meat, we have cut down (Lamb Curry Noodle, Lamb Burger, Lamb Kofta Curry & Lamb Spinach Spaghetti). Still, the desire for lamb won't just leave us alone. Lamb curry of course is one we simply adore ((Lamb Yogurt Curry), then again, it will be nice to be inventive and try a new dish. Actually, not really something really new to me, I did previously showcased lemongrass chicken kebab, just that this time its lamb. Lamb on lemongrass sticks instead of wooden or metal skewers, teamed with a simple cucumber yogurt salad (vegetable raita, kerabu mangga or watermelon mint salad). Indeed, grilled juicy succulent lamb on lemongrass sticks, appealing and appetising to each of your food senses. 

400g minced lamb
6 sticks of lemongrass (lightly crush the white thick end)

1 tsp plain chilli powder
1/4 tsp garam masala (or all spice powder)
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp fennel powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp onion/shallot paste
Salt for taste
Mix lamb with all the spices and salt. 
Knead lightly till mixture comes together.
Divide into 6 portions. 
Roll each portion into a sausage shape.
Flatten the mixture on the palm of your hand.
Lay a lemongrass down to the centre and towards the lightly crushed white end.
Bring the mixture together and mould tightly to enclose it. 
Gently roll to even it out.
Meaning - clump the lamb over the lemongrass
Heat a portable grill (non-stick will be good) and pour a little oil.  
Grill on both sides for thorough charred and cooked on both sides. 
Serve immediately with salad.
