Mexican Lamb Koftas

It seems that many countries have their own take on lamb koftas and so we thought a Mexican version might work a treat.

We’ve mixed in a healthy spoonful of our Smoked Chilli Paste along with crunchy pine nuts and fresh coriander. We’ve served it with naan breads and a yoghurt dip to make it a little fusion, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t wrap it in tortillas and serve with guacamole to keep it straight Mexican!

Mexican Lamb Koftas Recipe

Make It: Mexican
Ideal For: Dinner

Ingredients Ingredients

Dip
  • Tup of Greek yoghurt
  • Handful fresh mint
  • Half a cucumber
To Serve
  • Lemon (to serve)
  • Naan breads (or any other flat breads/wrap)

Instructions Instructions

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water (this will prevent them from burning).
  2. Grate the onion (or use a food processor to save the tears). Press through a sieve to discard most of the water it holds.
  3. Toast whole pine nuts in a dry frying pan (be careful not to burn). Chop roughly.
  4. Add onion and pine nuts to a mixing bowl along with lamb mince, Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, chopped mint, chopped coriander and a good pinch of salt & pepper.
  5. Using your hands preferably, mix well until everything is combined.
  6. Shape into long sausages and push onto soaked wooden skewers.
  7. Leave in the fridge for an hour or so.
  8. Meanwhile, mix the yoghurt with the chopped mint and grated cucumber.
  9. Warm naan breads or flatbreads in oven.
  10. Heat a griddle pan (or light the bbq) until very hot. Cover each kofta in a little olive oil and add to the griddle pan.
  11. Cook until golden and slightly charred all around.
  12. Serve with yoghurt dip, flatbreads and lemon wedges.
