Simple lamb koftas
If you have small children you can skip the skewers and simply make the kofta shape without them.

2 tsp fresh mint

Wooden or metal skewars (optional)

600g lean lamb mince

120g breadcrumbs

3 cloves garlic

2 eggs

2 tsp fresh thyme

In a food processor, pulse the breadcrumbs with the garlic and herbs.

Add the mince and eggs and pulse again until combined.

Shape into whatever style kofta you like, perhaps long and thin or a little bit thicker and shorter.

When shaped place a skewer through each one.

 Place in the fridge for over an hour or even better overnight, to allow the flavours to really develop.

When you are ready, cook over medium heat either in the grill, in a frying pan or, if it's summer, why not on the barbeque. Just be sure to cook the meat through until it is well browned.

Enjoy with pitta bread and salad.
