Lamb Kofta Kebabs - Easy and Delicious

Lamb Kofta Kebabs are easy to make and more to the point, they are delicious! My 'make it up as you go along' recipe for Kofta Kebabs worked. Okay, this isn't the best plated up picture in the world but you get the idea.

Lamb Kofta Kebabs

There I was at work on Monday filling up the meat fridges when I spied kebabs and so felt the need to be making them.

Once again I read the back of the packet to see what they'd put in and went home with a mission to make them. Must say, I was really pleased with the result and will make these again.

I cooked them on my amazing electric griddle thing - perfect! But you can, of course, use a grill pan. Turn them a couple of times so they cook evenly. When they are nicely done and cooked through serve straight away.

I served them with pitta bread that I'd put on the griddle before the kebabs.

Along with a lemon wedge, shredded white cabbage, onion, tomato, cucumber and a couple of pickled chilli peppers (shop brought in a jar). The dipping sauce was a hot pepper sauce; again shop bought.

Please note

This post was written in 2009 and since then I have come up with a far better lamb kofta recipe - no breadcrumbs involved!
