  • 4 small to medium baking potatoes
  • 2tbsp olive or rapeseed oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 500g lean lamb mince
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 2tsp ground coriander
  • Large pinch chilli powder
  • 1tbsp fresh chopped mint
  • Plain yogurt and lemon juice to serve

If you are using wooden skewers soak them in cold water for about 30 mins before using so they dont burn under a hot grill or on a barbeque.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Fan 180C/Gas Mark 6. Wash the potatoes and cut into wedges. Put into a bowl and add the oil and toss well together. Spread out on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 2030 mins until golden brown and cooked through. Turn the wedges over a couple of times during cooking.
  2. Put all the remaining ingredients, except the yogurt and lemon juice, into a bowl and mix well together. Divide the mixture into eight and shape into ovals. Thread onto skewers.
  3. Heat a griddle pan or a grill. Brush the koftas with a little oil and then cook on the griddle or under the grill for 3-4 mins each side until cooked and browned.
  4. Serve the koftas with the potato wedges and plain yogurt with lemon juice.
