Lamb Koftas

Sensational spicy minced lamb koftas.



  1. Mix the lamb in a large bowl with the onion, garlic, spices and coriander and season well with salt and pepper.
  2. Using wet hands shape the rest of the mixture into 12 cigar shapes. These can be left in the fridge for up to 24 hours or frozen until ready to cook.
  3. Add the olive oil to a large frying pan on a medium heat.
  4. Fry the koftas for 10–15 minutes or until they are brown on both sides and cooked through. Alternatively, sear the koftas quickly in a really hot ovenproof pan and transfer to the oven, preheated to 430 °F (220 °C) for 7 for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the pan and leave to rest for a few minutes. When they are cool enough to handle, push a skewer through the length of each kofta.
  6. Arrange three koftas on each plate. Scatter with the mint and serve with the lemon wedges and your choice of accompaniments.
