  1. In a bowl, mix the tikka spice with 1 tbsp oil and a pinch of sea salt and add the diced lamb, stir to coat and set aside to marinate until needed.
  2. Finely slice the onion. Cut the red pepper into bite-sized pieces and slice each dried apricot into quarters. Remove the cardamom seeds from the pods, lightly bruise the seeds with a rolling pin or crush in a pestle and mortar and discard the green shells.
  3. Thread a piece of lamb and piece of red pepper alternately onto each of the 4 skewers.
  4. Preheat a griddle pan (or BBQ) on a medium-high heat and add the skewers, cook for 10-15 mins, turning every 2-3 mins, until cooked.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized pan, heat 1 tsp oil on a medium heat and cook the onion, cardamom seeds and turmeric for 5 mins until the onion has softened. Then add the dried apricots, cauli rice and 1 tbsp cold water and cook for 3 mins, stirring frequently.
  6. Then stir in the spinach and half of the juice from the lemon to the cauli rice and cook for a further 2 mins until the spinach has wilted. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  7. Serve two lamb tikka kebabs on each plate, alongside the apricot & cardamom cauli rice. Drizzle over the remaining lemon juice.
