Super easy Lamb Koftas made using a little hack!


  • 24 lamb meatballs
  • 250g greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cucumber, finely diced
  • 1 garlic cloves, crushed or grated
  • 1 tsp mint sauce
  • 4 pitta breads
  • lettuce, tomato and coriander to serve


  1. If using wooden skewers soak them in water for 15 minutes to stop them burning. Add three meatballs to one skewer and mould into a kofta shape.
  2. Cook the koftas under a medium grill for 15-18 minutes, turning them a couple of times to ensure they are cooked through evenly.
  3. Make the tzatziki by mixing the greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic and mint sauce in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the pitta breads in a toaster or under a grill.
  5. Serve immediately with lettuce, sliced tomato and fresh coriander.
