Ingredients

  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 fat garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • oil for brushing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix together all the ingredients until well blended. Divide into eight balls, then roll each ball on a board with a cupped hand to turn them into ovals. Thread onto four metal skewers and brush with oil.

  • STEP 2

    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.

  • STEP 3

    Season if you want, and set aside. Serve the koftas with yogurt and spiced flat breads.

RECIPE TIPS
TO BBQ
Put the meat skewers on the grill over a medium heat for about 3-4 mins each side.
