Lamb Koftas

lamb kofta beech ridge farm recipe

Perfect for the barbecue or on a griddle pan, our lamb koftas are easy to make and taste delicious.


500g Beech Ridge Farm lamb mince

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground coriander

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp chopped mint

oil for brushing



  1. Add all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well with your hands, squeezing the flavours into the mince until well blended.
  2. Divide into 8 balls and roll on a board with create oval shaped koftas.
  3. Thread onto 4 skewers and brush with oil (if you are using wooden skewers remember to soak them in water for a min of 30 mins before hand to help avoid them burning).
  4. If using a griddle pan, ensure the pan is piping hot (so that you can feel a good heat rising from the pan) and cook for 3-4 mins each side. Don’t turn until they are well sealed or the meat will stick to the grill pan. These koftas are perfect for the BBQ too.
  5. Serve with minted yogurt and flat breads.


Minted yoghurt


4 sprigs of fresh mint

1 lemon

¼ clove of garlic

200 g natural yoghurt

sea salt & freshly ground black pepper



Finely chop the mint leaves and add to a medium sized mixing bowl.

Finely grate the zest of half a lemon into the bowl and squeeze the juice in too (avoiding any pips!)

Peel and finely grate the garlic to the lemon and mint mixture.

Add the yoghurt and a little pinch of salt and pepper. Stir together.


Voila! the perfect accompaniment to your homemade lamb koftas.
