Lamb Kofta with Orange Salad

A feast full of colour and flavour fit for any occasion.

Tips

Moderate spice level to your liking.

If using a different yoghurt, do not add water until the end and only if needed. Zesty garlic sauce should be slightly runny but still thick.

Preparation

  • 1 Prepare lamb koftas. If using wooden skewers, soak in cold water for 10 min. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add onions and cook until translucent (2-3 min). Let cool. Add onion to a large mixing bowl with remaining kofta ingredients. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients. With damp hands, divide the meat into 12 equal pieces. Push and mould the meat onto each skewer. To cook, heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook in batches for 5-6 min, turning regularly to brown evenly.
  • 2 Add all ingredients for the zesty garlic sauce into a mixing bowl and whisk until well combined. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top.
  • 3 Add all salad dressing ingredients into a bowl and whisk until well combined. Layer citrus rounds onto a serving dish. Top with olives and red onion. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle over Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Parsley, if using.
  • 4 Serve kofta with zesty garlic sauce, orange salad and warmed flat or pita breads.
