Cooking Instructions

  1. Finely cube the cucumber before adding to a mixing bowl along with the garlic, mint, parsley and yoghurt. Stir together before seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 
  2. Heat the red wine vinegar along with the sugar and garlic. Bring to a simmer before adding the red onion and taking off the heat. Allow it to infuse while cooling in the pickle. 
  3. For the Koftas: Combine all the ingredients together then shape into a ball slightly larger than a golf ball. Skewer the ball with a skewer or kebab stick. Begin squeezing the ball down the skewer to form a sausage like shape. 
  4. Heat a griddle pan over a medium heat before adding the skewered meat. Cook for 2 minutes before turning slightly to cook the kofta evenly. 
  5. Squeeze the lemon over the kofta before serving with the pickled onions, tzatziki and pita breads.
