Method

  1. In a large bowl, mix the lamb mince with the curry paste, mango chutney, garlic and ginger. Season a little and roll into 20 oval balls. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan – you shouldn’t need any oil, as lamb mince is quite fatty. Cook the koftas in batches for 2-3 mins – be careful as they are quite fragile.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Transfer the koftas to a baking tray and put in the oven for 10 mins, adding the flatbreads for the final 5 mins. Mix the yogurt with the mint sauce. Serve the koftas wrapped in a flatbread with some minty yogurt, tomato and lettuce.

Really easy, cost effective way of eating lamb. Used store bought flatbread, but with homemade bread this would be even more delicious (and cheaper too). I added grated carrots etc to boost salad and served with a portion of bulgar wheat for my hungry boys.

Lovely recipe. Second time of making in a week as family love it. I didn't bother frying first, I just put them in the oven, less messy that way.

Family enjoyed! Quick to make. In fact 7 year old did most of it! Doubled recipe, upped the garlic and ginger. Baked in oven, much easier. Only minus was it was a bit sweet. I’d reduce to mango next time. Was also confused about the mint sauce so used fresh mint. Rice, salad and chapati...done:)

This is an amazing recipe! Quick and easy light meal. I didnt have any ginger and it still tasted amazing. Would recommend! Will be making this again!

I read the comments on this and doubled the spices I used. Family said they could be even spicier hence the 4 stars not 5....definitely the spice amount needs to be increased. Super easy to do and super quick to make. I mixed all the ingredients, rolled the koftas and then stuck them in the fridge for an hour or so until I was ready to cook them. Cooked on a griddle with no additional oil. Perfect...served with herby couscous, minty yogurt and flatbreads

Made these as per instructions and I felt like they lacked flavour, I didn't enjoy them.

These were absolutely delicious. 15 mins to make, 10 mins to polish off. I will definitely be making these again. Next time I will double the amount the lamb as we could have eaten more.

These koftas are great! Used parathas instead of flatbread to serve. Really yummy!

These are really good and very quick. Bumped the lamb mince to 800g for four hungry adults and there was loads left.
