  • Amount

  • Ingredients
    • 350g lean lamb mince
    • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 2 tsp ground cumin
    • 4 spring onions finely chopped
    • 1/2 cucumber roughly chopped into big chunks
    • 1 large tomato roughly chopped into big chunks
    • 16 black olives
    • splash of sherry vinegar
    • small handful of mint leaves to serve - optional
  • Preheat your grill to maximum.
  • Tip the lamb mince into a bowl. Add the cinnamon and cumin, spring onions, garlic and a generous pinch of salt and pepper, then mix the whole lot together thoroughly – I find the best way is to dig your hands in there.
  • Mould the mince mixture into 4 equal-sized sausage shapes and place on your grill pan or a baking tray.
  • Grill the koftas for 5 minutes on each side or until well browned and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, toss the cucumber, tomato, olives and vinegar together in a bowl.
  • Serve your koftas with this chunky salad – and an artistic scattering of mint leaves, if you like.
