Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan, fry the onions with the ginger, garlic and spices for 5 mins until soft, then tip into a large bowl to cool.
  2. Mix together the lamb, peas and egg with the onion and season with a little salt. Shape the mixture into 12 patties. You can freeze for up to one month at this stage, then defrost in the fridge. Alternatively, refrigerate up to 1 day in advance. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and fry the patties, 4 mins each side, or until cooked through.

Easy recipe, great taste. I swapped the star anise for a shake of ground cardamon and I didnt put the peas in. A great starter with yoghurt/mint dip. My friends now want the recipe!
