Lamb koftas

Aromatic and delicious lamb koftas with fresh mint, ground coriander and cumin. To prepare this dish we used very lean lamb (less than 10% fat). They’re very easy and quick to prepare. Remember to put the meat into the fridge for at least two hours, to let the flavours combine. Koftas taste great when served with rice, salad with tomatoes and olives and tzatziki dip. Enjoy.
