Summer Recipe: Lamb Kofta

Cooking time: 10-12 mins. Serves 5-6

1kg minced lamb
2 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped
flat leaf parsley, chopped
1tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp allspice
1/2tsp black pepper
1/2tsp cumin
2tsp salt

Cooking Instructions

  1. Place the minced meat, onions, parsley, cinnamon, allspice, black pepper, cumin and salt in a food processor. Process briefly until well mixed. Alternatively, mix well by hand for a ‘chunkier’ mixture.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours for the flavours to develop.
  3. Divide the mixture into 18 equal portions and form each one into fingers about 12cm long. Thread each finger onto a skewer. Grill over coals, or under a domestic grill for around 10 – 12 minutes turning frequently until they are well done.
  4. Serve with pitta bread and salad.
