Lamb Wrap with Almond Basmati Rice

This lamb wrap is inspired from the Arabic cuisine, but it has clear references to the Greek and Mexican ones. You need to flavor the lamb cooking it with coriander, ginger, and onion. Then quickly make a no-brainer refreshing yogurt sauce. Use these to top and season the basmati rice mixed with fried almonds and pine nuts and served on tortilla wraps.
