Ingredients

For 4 Person(s)

Recipe

  • 500 g Lamb Mince
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 small Red Onion (finely diced)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cummin
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 0.25 cup Fresh Parsley (finely diced)
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

Untensils

  • 8 Kebab Sticks

Garnish

  • 0.5 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Lemon cut into wedges

Lamb Kofta Directions

    1. Soak Kebab Sticks in a bow of water for 10 minutes or so.
    2. Combine lamb mince (with exception of olive oil) add all ingredients in a bowl. I use disposable gloves so I can mix the ingredients by hand until the mix is well combined, a little sticky and easy to shape into the kofta shape.
    3. Thread Kofta onto kebab sticks. Use damp hands to get a smoother shape.
    4. Refridgerate for 10 minutes.
    5. Once your Kofta is set rub Olive Oil around on each Kofta.
      1. Cook on BBQ plate rolling around to make sure cook is even.
      2. If using a frypan, Cook the lamb kofta in batches over a medium-high heat, until golden and cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper. Add a little extra Olive Oil if necessary and allow the oil to reheat between batches. 
  1. To serve use ½ cup natural yoghurt or tzatziki and a wedge of fresh lemon!

Recipe notes

  • If you prefer to not use a kebab stick then a great idea is to use the Lamb Kofta in a chargrilled pita bread for a fabulous snack.
  • Kofta, patties, rissoles, and burgers should always be thoroughly cooked. They should not be served rare or pink. A good guide is to insert a skewer into the thickest part; if it is ready to eat the juices will be clear.
  • If you don't have fresh parsley a little fresh mint is awesome too.
  • I always use Lamb Shoulder Mince to make Kofta, it has the right ratio of fat content to meat for this dish.
  • If shopping in store let my Butchers know and they will mince fresh for you.
