½ x 400g can chickpeas (save the rest for the kofta balls)
½ bunch coriander, leaves only, to serve
250g minced lamb
1 small onion, finely chopped
small pack coriander, finely chopped
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp smoked paprika
½ x 400g can chickpeas (from above), drained and crushed
First, make the sauce. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and fry the onion for around 10 mins until starting to soften and caramelise. Stir in the garlic and cook for about 1 min, then add the tomatoes and tomato purée and stir again. Season well and pour in 400ml of the stock. Cover and bring to the boil, then simmer over a very low heat while you make the kofta balls.
Add all the ingredients for the kofta balls to a large mixing bowl, and mix with your hands until all the ingredients are combined. Spoon out golf ball-sized pieces of the mixture, and roll into balls using your hands.
Give the sauce a good stir. Drop the kofta balls on top, then add the cauliflower florets and the rest of the chickpeas, pushing them just under the liquid. Simmer for 25-30 mins or until the kofta balls are tender, adding the remaining 100ml of stock, if necessary. Scatter over the coriander and serve.
