Lamb Kofta Kebabs

  • Author: Robyn


  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika

Other ingredients:

  • 1 cup. Plain greek yogurt
  • 1tbsp Sriracha
  • large bunch mint


Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Then, form little patties, the size of a large meatball, in the palm of your hand. Roll them out to be oval little balls and then place them on a tray. After You’ve rolled all the balls out, insert (pre soaked) bamboo skewers into them.

Grill the koftas on a medium high heat grill, about 350 degrees, for 3 minutes per side, or until an internal read thermometer (I recommend the Thermapen) reads 160 degrees. Make sure you oil your grill grates so the meat does not stick. After you pull them off, let them rest under foil for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, grill your pita flat bread for a few minutes to get warm. Serve the koftas with the warm pita bread and greek yogurt dipping sauce. Use chopped mint as a garnish before serving if you like.
