Amazing Lamb Kofta

Made with minced lamb from my father Toni’s flock of sheep, this is one of my favorite dishes. I sometimes help to butcher the lambs, so everything I cook with this amazing meat is a very special treat.



250 g minced lamb

1 clove of garlic

1 T cumin seeds

1 T fenugreek seeds

1 T anise seeds

4 cloves

5 pods white cardamom

2 pods black cardamom

1 cm piece of cinnamon

1/4 t nutmeg



//1 Gently roast all the spices in a non stick pan, then grind them in a mortar until you get a fine powder.

//2 In a bowl, combine the minced meat with the spices and the finely chopped garlic. Using your hands and some water, form little oval shaped Kofte meatballs.

//3 Fry the Kofte in a Pan over medium heat, until they are crispy brown on the outside and cooked through in the inside. If you use quite fat minced meat as I do, you need no additional oil in your frying pan.

// 4 Serve the Kofte with some yogurt, that you have previously spiced up with lemon juice, salt an pepper. As a side, a simple cabbage salad with caraway seeds will taste great!
