1 day in advance:

In a large bowl combine the garlic cloves, pomegranate juice, molasses, juniper berries and pink peppercorns. Add the cubed lamb and mix well. Marinate for at least 2 hours or ideally overnight.

2 hours in advance:

Combine all the chutney ingredients in a bowl, season and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

To make the glaze:

Combine all the ingredients and keep until you are ready to cook the lamb.

To cook the lamb:

Remove the lamb cubes from the marinade, divide evenly between the 12 skewers, and brush with the glaze. Cook the kebabs on a preheated grill, turning frequently and basting with the glaze every now and again as you turn them. Cook for 10-14 minutes, depending on how pink you like the lamb. Serve immediately with pomegranate chutney.
