Minted Lamb Koftas

I just love the flavour combination of lamb and mint, and this is just a very quick and easy recipe that I just love.

8oz minced lamb
1oz white breadcrumbs
1 small onion, peeled and very finely chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
salt and pepper
1 small egg, beaten

yogurt Dressing
¼ pint yogurt
1 tsp fresh mint, chopped
salt and pepper

To Serve
4 pitta bread
shredded lettuce
sliced cucumber
sliced tomato

1. Combine the minced meat, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, mint, salt and pepper.
2. Add enough egg to bind and form into small sausage shapes. Grill under a medium to high heat for about 15 minutes, turning once, until brown and cooked through.
3. To make the dressing mix the yogurt, mint, salt and pepper.
4. To serve, fill the pittas with lettuce, cucumber, tomato and the grilled kofta, top with the yoghurt dressing.
