I really like koftas for a variety of reasons. It's a great way to eat lam that's lean and relatively inexpensive. They're a change from an everyday burger, which I guess is exactly what they are in a deconstructed kind of way. Oh yes and they're yummy.
Koftas are essentially a big meatball on a stick.
I served these in Lebanese bread with tabbouleh, lettuce, and Greek yogurt.
Simple and delish.
My camera was having a bit of a moment so sorry the photo isn't so great.
Bamboo skewers (soak for an hour in water to stop sticking)
500g minced lamb
1/2 an onion finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon cumin
zest of 1/2 a lemon
handful of chopped parsley
salad of choice eg lettuce avocado etc
1. Combine lamb, onion, garlic, lemon, cumin and parsley in a bowl.
2. Form sausage shapes around bamboo skewers (my recipe made 10).
3. Refrigerate 1/2 an hour.
4. Cook on a BBQ or chargrill about 15 minutes till cooked (I browned mine and then finished them in the oven).
5. Serve in Lebanese bread with salads.
