  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 fat garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • oil for brushing


Put the meat skewers on the grill over a medium heat for about 3-4 mins each side.


  1. Mix together all the ingredients until well blended. Divide into 8 balls, then roll each ball on a board with a cupped hand to turn them into ovals.

  2. Thread onto 4 metal skewers and brush with oil. To cook on a griddle: heat the pan until you can feel a good heat rising and cook for 3-4 mins each side. Don’t turn until they are well sealed or the meat will stick to the grill or pan. Season if you want, and set aside. Serve the koftas with yogurt and spiced flat breads.
