Chargrilled Lamb Koftas

Chargrilled Lamb Koftas

Another great BBQ dish (I’m making the most of the good weather!) – heavily spiced, cigar shaped lamb patties deliver a great whack of flavour which stands up against the strong char from hickory wood chips.

Served with lightly charred tortillas or tacos, onion salad and yogurt dressing, these koftas are great at any time of the year.

Lamb Koftas
Serves 6


800g Minced Lamb Shoulder
1 Onion (Finely Diced)
Large Handful Parsley (Chopped)
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Hot Chilli Powder
2 or 3 Red Chillies (Chopped)
Small Handful Pine nuts (Chopped)
1 Large Garlic Clove (Crushed)
1 tsp Ground Allspice
1/2 Nutmeg (Finely Grated)
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Cracked Black Pepper


1) Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with your hand (folding the mixture back on itself) until fully combined. Shape into equal sized cigar shapes and store in the fridge until ready to cook.

2) Cook the koftas on a chargrill over hot charcoal which has been sprinkled with soaked hickory wood chips. Drizzle with a little olive oil halfway through cooking.

Serve with toasted tortillas, yogurt dressing and red onion salad. Enjoy!
