Method

  1. Heat the grill. In a large bowl, mix the mince, harissa, coriander, grated onion and some seasoning. Shape into 4 large or 8 small koftas. Lay on a baking sheet and grill for 6-8 mins until cooked through, turning occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds and toast for a min or so until aromatic. Tip in the carrots, season and sauté for 5 mins until just tender.
  3. Mix the yogurt and garlic. Stuff the pitta halves with the koftas, carrots, onion slices and garlicky yogurt to serve.
