Kofta Kebabs

Easy kofte recipe with ground lamb or beef and a mix of spices including garlic, ginger, mint, parsley, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and more. Serve with tzatziki, rice or on a pita.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


1 pound ground lamb (or ground beef)
3 garlic cloves
1/2 inch piece ginger , peeled
2 shallots , peeled
3 tbsp fresh parsley
1 tbsp fresh mint
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt


Add all the ingredients, except the ground lamb, to a food processor and pulse until the garlic and ginger are finely minced – about 20-30 seconds.
Add the spice mixture to the ground lamb and knead until well combined.
If using bamboo skewers, soak for 15 minutes before using.
Take a handful of the meat mixture and form into a meatball. Thread onto the skewer and roll the meat in your hands to flatten it into a long egg type shape. Do this with the remaining meat mixture.
Heat grill to high heat. Place kebabs on grill and cook for about 6 minutes. Turn and cook another 6 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Remove from the grill.
Serve with tzatziki. Recipe here.
