Combine the mince, semi-dried tomato, spice mix, chopped coriander, egg and two-thirds of the garlic in a bowl. Shape around soaked bamboo skewers. Place in the fridge for 15 mins to chill.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion. Season with salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for 15 mins or until onion is golden and caramelized. Add allspice, cinnamon and remaining garlic and cook for 1 min or until aromatic. Add rice and lentils and cook for 3 mins or until heated through. Season. Stir through coriander leaves.
Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a frying pan or barbecue flat plate over medium heat. Cook skewers, turning frequently, for 8 mins or until cooked through.
Serve skewers with the rice mixture and yoghurt.
