Grilled kofte

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Thick slices day old white bread; crusts removed
450 grams Best quality minced beef or lamb
1 \N Onion; grated or very
\N \N ; finely chopped
1 teaspoon Ground cumin; (optional)
\N \N Salt and pepper
\N \N Olive oil
\N \N Chilli flakes
\N \N Dried oregano


Soak the bread in water for 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze dry, then crumble. Mix with the meat, onion, cumin (if using), salt and pepper, then whizz in a processor or pass through a mincer. Knead the mixture with your hands for a few minutes until smooth and cohesive.

Divide into 12 portions and roll each one into either a tubby sausage shape or a small rugby ball. Brush with oil and grill for 5-6 minutes until just cooked through, but still slightly pink at heart.

Serve with chilli and oregano for those who want to spice them up. A salad of tomato, lettuce and cucumber is a good accompaniment.
