Kid’s Koftas

Something a little bit different with these meatballs traditionally from regions India to the Middle East. So easy to make, and very agreeable flavours for the kids.

Total time: 

Serves: 8 balls

  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 onion
  • ½ cup fresh flat leaf parsley (continental)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix lamb, onion, parsley, garlic, cumin, cinnamon and coriander together in a bowl. HINT: I use the blender to whizz up the onions and parsley together, time saver and mixes better with the mince.
  2. Add breadcrumbs and egg and keep mixing.
  3. When done, roll into medium sized balls – about an inch in diameter.
  4. Next using generous oil, fry them in the frying pan turning frequently for 8-10 minutes. Or if you prefer, pop them under the grill for 5 minutes a side.
  5. Serve with any veg, pictured here with oven roasted veggies.
