Lamb koftas

lamb koftas

Traditional Lamb Koftas are simple meatballs with spices added to create Eastern flavours. Koftas can be made using pork, beef, turkey or chicken mince and are simple to make as well as delicious.

Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes or better still I often make them the night before as it fits my time schedule much better. Alternatively purchase 80% – 100% lamb or speciality pork sausages if they are a great deal cheaper.
