150 ml (1/4 pint) dry white wine

1 teaspoon cornflour
artificial liquid sweetener, to taste

method

1. Put the cubed lamb into a shallow dish with the peppercorns, salt, white wine, orange rind, cinnamon and sliced onion. Cover and thill for 2 hours. Drain the meat, reserving the marinade and thread on to skewers. Grill the kebabs under a preheated grill 4-5 minutes each side.

2. Meanwhile make the sauce. Fry the chopped onion in the olive oil for 3 minutes.

3. Add the strained marinade and the saffron and bubble briskly for 1 minute.

4. Blend the egg yolk with the yogurt, orange juice and cornflour; add to the sauce and stir over a gentle heat until lightly thickened. Add a little artificial sweetener if necessary.

Saffron comes from the dried flower pistils of a variety of crocus. It takes about 60,000 of the pistils to produce 450 g (1 lb) of saffron.
