Easy Recipe for Lamb Mince Kofta

Easy Recipe for Lamb Mince Kofta

Tried this easy recipe last night for Lamb Kofta from Allyson Gofton , just loved it and was so quick to prepare and make. It makes about 10 skewers. As a family meal, or part of a barbecue selection, they are quick to prepare and great on their own, or served in a pita bread with your favourite sauce. This mixture can also be used to make tasty burgers as well, the same quantities will make around 6 burger patties.

Such a great dish for a summer BBQ!
