    Thank you :) It's a nice variation of grilled lamb. You could ditch the chillies if you don't like spicy flavours :)

    I can handle some spice... but I've been reduced to tears and water-gulping by satay before. Maybe one chili?

    Sure. This dish definitely loves some kick in the sauce :)
