Lamb Kofte with Raita

INGREDIENTS:

12 soaked Norfolk Grills Bamboo Skewers

300g Lamb Mince

2 Cloves of Garlic

1 tsp fennel seed

1 tsp cumin seed

1 tsp coriander seed 

2 tbsp flat parsley chopped

1 egg

1 green chilli, deseeded and chopped

Salt and Pepper

METHOD:

Heat your BBQ on full heat.

In a bowl combine all the ingredients with your hands, and season well. 

Take out the minced lamb mix and shape in your hands carefully sliding the mixture onto each skewer. This can be done well in advance and refrigerated until ready to use. 

When you have used up all your mixture place the Kofta's on the BBQ, colouring on both sides for about 15 minutes. 

 

 (TIP: To prevent your Kofta's sticking, use the Norfolk Grills Grill Mat sold seperately, it's great for Fish dishes too!)

300g Greek Yoghurt

20g Chopped Mint

20g Chopped Coriander

1 Cucumber, halved down the middle and seeds removed

Rind of half a lemon

Sprinkle of cumin powder

1/2 tsp chilli powder

Salt and Pepper

In the bowl, grate the cucumber in the yoghurt, then combine all the other ingredients. Stir well and keep refrigerated until ready.
