This week the Greek economic situation has been headline news and hopefully it will be sorted soon as it must be an extremely worrying time for people living there. I love a kofta and wanted a recipe that could do justice to Simon’s delicious carrot salad. I have used some Moroccan ingredients to spice things up.
500g (16 oz)Minced Lamb , 1 or 2 Red chilli’s, fresh garlic, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, fresh mint,
Pomegranate syrup, Ras El Hanout spice mix, salt & pepper
Chop up the red chilli, garlic, herbs (leaves only). Add to the minced lamb & mix well. Add 2 teaspoons of pomegranate syrup , 2 teaspoons of Ras El Hanout spice mix, salt & pepper & chill the mixture for 30 minutes to make it easier to handle. It can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge overnight. Form the kofta balls or burgers & grill or BBQ. It’s not Greek it’s Moroccan!
