Lamb, kofta, simple, easy, BBQ


Add some interest to a BBQ with friends with these tasty lamb koftas. The addition of fresh mint, lifts this dish from plain to interesting and they went down a treat at my house this weekend.

If you like these, you could also try making spicy chicken koftas.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: minutes
Makes: 6-8 servings

Ingredients
500g lamb mince
2 tbsp fresh mint
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cumin
3 garlic cloves

Method
Finely chop the mint and crush the garlic.

Add all the ingredients together.
Mix well so that everything is evenly distributed. I find that it works best if I use my hands rather than a spoon or fork.
Form the mincemeat mixture in 6 large balls or 8 if you want to stretch the dish further.

Take each ball of mince and squish it into a longer tube shape, warpping around a skewer.

These taste great if grilled on a hot charcoal BBQ but you could just use a regular grill too.

Once cooked all the way through, serve as they are or pop inside a toasted pitta bread with minted yogurt and salad.
