A favourite with kids everywhere. These spiced lamb koftas can be cooked with or without a skewer and are delicious served with your favourite salad and yoghurt.


500g Lamb mince
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tsp chili powder
1 Tsp garlic powder
1½ Cup Greek yoghurt
¼ Cup chopped mint leaves
Juice of ½ lemon
200g Sheep or goat’s milk Feta cheese, crumbled
Lebanese or pita bread
1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
½ Small Spanish onion, thinly sliced
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper


  1. Remove lamb mince from the fridge and bring to room temperature.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add the herbs and spices to the lamb and season with salt and pepper. Knead with hands until the meat becomes sticky.

  3. Wash hands and have a bowl of water handy to dip hands into. Wet hands will make the meat easier to roll.

  4. Divide the mince into 12 portions and roll each with wet hands to make short fat sausages.

  5. Skewer each kofta with a pre-soaked bamboo skewer.

  6. In a small bowl combine the Greek yoghurt with chopped mint, lemon juice, crumbled feta and season to taste.

  7. Get the BBQ hot. Cook lamb koftas on the flat hotplate side of the BBQ.

  8. Serve with pita bread, cucumber slices, sliced onion, lettuce and minted feta sauce.
