Method

  1. Mix together all the ingredients until well blended. Divide into 8 balls, then roll each ball on a board with a cupped hand to turn them into ovals.
  2. Thread onto 4 metal skewers and brush with oil. To cook on a griddle: heat the pan until you can feel a good heat rising and cook for 3-4 mins each side. Don’t turn until they are well sealed or the meat will stick to the grill or pan. Season if you want, and set aside. Serve the koftas with yogurt and spiced flat breads.

delicious and very easy, I just squash them a bit and cook them as burgers which is even easier!

Very easy to make. Lots of taste. I didn't use the skewers just cooked them in the griddle pan. Now a family favourite.
