Fast Easy Spicy Minced Lamb Curry Wraps

This is a quick on the go meal based on a Lamb Keema recipe. Just wrap this up in foil and take it to the office for lunch. A quick zap in the microwave will warm it up nicely. 
If you are making this at home, it goes really well with a cold beer. 
If you are making this for children, you can omit the chillies and reduce the spice. You can also add more vegetables like chopped carrots.
