      Directions

      Place the lamb, garlic, ginger, onions, chili, mango, fenugreek, garam masala, cardamom, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix well. Press about 2 heaping tablespoons of the mixture onto one end of each skewer to make "popsicles." They can be oblong or round as long as they adhere to the skewers and don't fall off during grilling.

      Preheat a grill to medium-high and oil it. Grill the lamb popsicles until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with Cherry and Peach Chutney.
      Put the cherries, peaches, green onions, green chilies, lemon juice, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth but still slightly chunky. Makes 2 cups.

        I did not use popsicle sticks, made the lamb as patties so perhaps cooked it a little less than Bal as it didn't need to hold to a stick. Barbecue'd and served with an eggplant curry. Cherries are not in season so used a handful of frozen, half a mango, luckily had 1 peach, used Meyer lemon. FABULOUS MEAL! The lamb was beyond amazing, juicy, flavorful. The best lamb patty I have ever eaten. Superb. The chutney was fantastic. Can't wait to try more of Bal's dishes. No problems with meat coming apart as with last reviewer. Ground my own spices-used fennugreek seeds, good dose salt/pepper. Flavor superb!

        Flavors pretty good, but grilling a disaster. Followed recipe exactly with the exception that I used ground fenugreek as I could not find the leaves. The chutney was superb,I had to use frozen fruit as it is March. The flavor of the meat was pretty good, but I think a bit more of the key spices would be in order. My problem, which results in the 3 stars is that the meat fell apart on the indoor grill. No matter how delicately I handled them when turning, they all disintegratede to a degree. VERY disappointing. I will try again and use an egg to bind the meat. Super potential.
