Minted Lamb Koftas

Lamb doesn't have to be complicated, or take hours to cook. This recipe serves up the deliciousness of a slow cooked lamb by using lamb mince. Serve on or off the skewer with a side, like our beetroot and orange salad.


500 gram lean grass fed lamb mince

2 large onions, chopped

1 large egg

3-4 chillies (red or green), chipped

2-3 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1/2 cup chopped mint

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

A little black pepper to taste


Process the onion, chillies, garlic, egg, allspice, cinnamon, black pepper, parsley and mint in a food processor until it makes a smooth mixture.

Add minced lamb and pulse to make a smooth mixture.

Mould the lamb mixture onto metal skewers and grill under a hot grill for approximately 10 minutes, turning as needed to prevent burning.

Alternatively, cook on a lightly oiled grill plate on top of the stove or on the BBQ.
