Preparation

Beat the eggs. Deseed and chop the green chillis. Crush the garlic cloves. Finely chop the onions.

Method

  1. 1 Soak 8 wooden skewers in cold water for 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a small frying pan and fry the onion for 3 minutes, until soft.
  2. 2 Add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further minute. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the lamb mince. Chop half the mint and fold into the lamb mixture, along with the egg, coriander and some seasoning.
  3. 3 Divide the mixture into 8 and press on to the skewers (you might find it easier to wet your hands first to prevent the meat from sticking).
  4. 4 Soak the saffron in 1 tbsp hot water for 10 minutes, then stir into the yogurt. Season and chill until ready to use.
  5. 5 Heat the grill to high. Sit the koftas on an oiled grill rack over a grill pan and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through.
  6. 6 Warm the tortillas according to the packet instructions, then top with watercress and remaining mint leaves. Put 2 koftas on each tortilla and drizzle over the yogurt dressing to serve.

    Made this today very nice but needs more seasoning

    Made this but found it really bland. Will try again but requires considerably more seasoning.
