Lamb Kofta

Lamb Kofta

These are a great alternative to a takeaway kebab and take just as long to make as it takes to go pick up a takeaway so there is no excuse. Also great for baby led weaning; as easy to hold in little hands and soft enough to munch on with only a few teeth. I just omit the salt and chillies from them for Bubbas version but he has been introduced to strong flavours from early weaning stages so depending on how your baby handles spices and herbs may need to reduce the amounts.

Serves 2 plus a hungry baby

Ingredients

500g Lamb Mince
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Onion
1 Green Chilli
1 tsp dried Coriander
½ tsp Paprika
½ tsp ground Cumin
½ tsp ground Coriander
1 egg
Salt and Pepper

Steps

1.Combine all of above and mix thoroughly – at this stage you can leave the mixture to marinate in the fridge for a few hours or even overnight

2. Once you are ready to cook them preheat the grill to medium - these would also be great done on the BBQ but we have not got around to buying one yet

3. Shape the kofta into a sausage shape and place onto a foiled baking tray, I then press a fork down to squash them slightly and create a pattern on top

4.Cook under a medium grill for 15- 20 minutes until golden brown on top

5.Serve with pittas, salad, mint sauce and hummus for a tasty kebab
