Lamb Kofta Recipe



400g minced lamb meat (For a veggie option, swap out lamb for falafel)
3 tbsp rose harissa
2 large flatbreads
2 tbsp pickled cabbage (Alternatively, use fresh red cabbage with a teaspoon of red wine vinegar for the sharp taste)
1 handful fresh parsley
1 handful rocket
1 handful unsalted pistachios (For a nut free alternative, we love toasted pumpkin seeds)
3 tbsp cottage cheese (Most soft cheeses work well: goats cheese, feta or ricotta are all great options too)
2 tbsp pomegranate seeds



  1. Roughly chop the fresh parsley.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the minced lamb with the harissa, using clean hands. Add in any other seasonings you would like.
  3. Form 8-10 koftas (sausage shape), the bumpier the better as this will go nice and crispy.
  4. On a medium-high heat, cook the koftas in a large frying pan with oil for 10 minutes. Ensure the koftas are cooked through (you do not want to see any pink in the middle!).
  5. Whilst these are cooking, heat up the flatbreads in the grill for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the flatbreads from the grill, and layer with the rocket, cabbage, cottage cheese and koftas.
  7. Roughly chop the pistachios and sprinkle these and the pomegranate seeds on top.
  8. Enjoy!
