Lamb Kofte makes 15 medium sized kofte


800g minced lamb

1.5 Tbsp garlic paste (I use Gia)

4 tsp kofte spice mix (I use one from Spice Mountain)

1/2 tsp salt

1 small red onion, peeled

1 Tbsp fresh mint


  • Preheat oven to 180°C

  • Lightly grease a large baking tray

  • Put onion, garlic, salt and mint into a food processor and blitz to a pulp.

  • Add to the meat and add the spices. Combine all ingredients and shape into pointed sausage shapes. If you find this too difficult, make them into meatballs!

  • At this point, you can chill them, covered, overnight in the fridge if you are making them for the next day.

  • Otherwise, bake immediately, for 20 mins. Turn the heat up to 200°C for the last 5 mins if you want them a darker brown

  • I served these with bulgar wheat, chopped mint and  a tahini sauce
