Goat koftas with a yoghurt, mint and lime dressing


This speedy kofta recipe is packed with flavour and would make a great alternative to homemade burgers. Try it with lamb instead of goat meat if you prefer.


For the koftas

For the dressing

To serve


  1. Heat a small frying pan and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Once hot add the onion and cook until soft. Place all the kofta ingredients, apart from the oil, into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Shape into sausage shapes.

  2. Heat a heavy flat griddle pan. Oil the koftas with the remaining oil and cook on the griddle for 6-7 minutes turning around constantly so they cook evenly.

  3. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. To serve, stuff the pitta bread with the cooked koftas, dressing and cheese and enjoy warm.
