1. In a shallow dish, mix together the yogurt, garlic, saffron, mint, honey, oil and ground black pepper.
2. Trim the lamb and cut into 2.5 cm / 1 in cubes. Add to the marinade and stir until well coated. Leave to marinate for at least 4 hours.
3. Cut the aubergine into 2.5 cm / 1 in cubes and blanch in boiling salted water for 1-2 minutes. Drain well.
4. Preheat the grill. Remove the lamb cubes from the marinade. Thread the lamb, aubergine and onion pieces alternately on to skewers.
