  • 500g lamb mince
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 8 rosemary sprigs
  • 4 pitta breads
  • 170g pot Greek yogurt
  • 2 lemons, cut into wedges
  • 150g pack radishes, sliced
  • ½ cucumber, chopped


  1. Heat the grill to high. In a large bowl, mix together the mince, allspice and garlic. Season and shape into 8 koftas, each wrapped around a rosemary sprig, with the stalk sticking out at one end. Repeat until all the mince is used up. Brush the koftas with a little oil and place on a baking tray. Grill for 10 mins or until cooked through, turning once.

  2. Eat the koftas from the rosemary stalks or pull out the stalks before serving. Serve with the pitta, yogurt, lemon wedges, radishes, cucumber and pickled chillies, if using.
