Ingredients

Lamb Koftas

  • 500g Quality Mark lean lamb mince
  • ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • ½ tablespoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and chilli
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • zest of a lemon
  • 10 bamboo skewers soaked in water for 1 hour

Yoghurt dipping sauce

  • ¾ cup greek yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper, to season

To Serve

  • pitas
  • leafy greens
  • sliced tomato
  • sliced red onion
  • lemon wedges

Method

Combine all the lamb kofta ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Divide the mixture into 10 portions and shape each so it resembles a sausage. Slide the shaped koftas onto the soaked skewers and refrigerate for half an hour. When ready, grill or barbecue 8-10 minutes until cooked, turning frequently.

Combine the yoghurt dipping sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 mins to allow the flavours to mingle and develop.

Serve with wholemeal pitas, leafy greens, sliced tomato and red onion, and lemon wedges for squeezing.
