one for the barbeque: lamb koftas

June 26, 2008

Is it barbeque weather where you are? Even if it isn’t, why not try these lamb koftas? They’re really quick to assemble and taste great fried or grilled on a barbeque. Serve with couscous or with pitta bread and a yoghurt and cucumber dip.


Makes 12

250g minced lamb
1/2 onion, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
1/2 tsp paprika
a handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into balls using your hands.

Heat a frying pan, add the oil and cook for 15 minutes, turning every few minutes.
