There are a few components to this recipe, but everything can be made ahead of time, even the day before, to make life easier.  Loaded fries are an underrated show-stopper and this dish is sure to wow your family and friends with its mix of textures and flavours.  


Mix together all the ingredients for the lamb patties really well by hand.  Shape into 4 patties or kofta-shaped cylinders, whatever you like.  They’re going to be broken up after grilling anyway and the aim is to get a good surface area for maximum contact with the grill while still maintaining the juiciness of the lamb.  Leave to rest in the fridge for an hour before cooking, overnight if possible.


Blitz together all the ingredients for the mango sauce using a food processor or stick blender.  Aim for a smooth pourable sauce consistency.  I like to put mine in a squeezy bottle so I can get a nice drizzle over the final dish.  This can also be made ahead of time for ease.


Mix together all the ingredients for the onion chutney, refrigerate and leave to rest for at least an hour for the flavours to get to know each other.


Set up your BBQ for dual zone cooking.  Grill the lamb patties until they’re beautifully browned with a nice crust and the internal temperature reaches 75 degrees C.  Dual zone cooking allows you to move the patties away from the direct flame if flare ups become an issue.  


Cook your chips and then serve, loading them up with broken up lamb pieces, onion chutney, sauces, pickles, herbs, crispy onions etc.  Enjoy!
