I used minced beef (just coz it's cheaper than lamb) and used white rice instead of brown. Really tasty and healthy and my 2 and 4 year old liked it too.

Absolutely fantastic.Tescos delivered me tagine instead of harrissa paste,but tried it anyway with an extra chilli...so nice .

Made this dinner last night, was really delicious and easy to prepare. I only made the kebabs, as not a fan of brown rice, I served it with a bulgar wheat salas instead. I think that next time I would add some extra harissa as there was too not much of a kick. I also cooked them on a griddle pan rather than under the grill, which worked completely fine.
Would recommend this recipe, and will definitely be making it again.

Made this tonight and it went down a storm. Few changes to the recipe though - I added 2 garlic cloves and some extra harissa to the kofta mixture and I added a finely chopped red chilli to the rice. Was very nice and will make it again soon.

Great summery taste, made with different ingredients and real range of complementary flavours. The mint- from our garden- was particularly nice. I made it with mixed long grain and wild rice and made little 'sausages' ( no skewers)
