Kebabs aren't just for summer BBQs. These juicy koftes are the perfect dinner on an autumnal evening. We oven baked these koftes but you could also cook them in an air fryer. We served them with homemade cyprus potato chips and a simple, slightly acidic salad to cut through the richness of the meat. You could also serve these with rice if you prefer.
- 300g Lamb Mince
- 300g Beef Mince (18% + fat)
- 4tsp The Kebab Club Kofte Dry Rub
- 1tbsp Sweet Pepper Paste
- 1tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 large handful chopped Parsley
- Half a bag Lambs Lettuce
- 1 Tomato, finely chopped
- 1/2 Cucumber, finely chopped
- 1 Pointed Red Pepper, finely sliced
- 1 Onion, finely sliced
- 1tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1tbsp Cider Vinegar
- 1tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1tsp Sumac
- 1tsp Salt
- 4 large Cyprus Potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into chips
- 2 litres Rapeseed Oil
- 1tsp Salt
- Heat your oven to 180c and line a large baking tray with baking paper. Mix all of the kofte ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure you give it a good mix so that all of the ingredients are evenly distributed. Slightly dampen your hands with some water and begin to roll the koftes into small burger shapes. You should get approximately 10 koftes. Once rolled place them on the baking tray and place it into the middle of the preheated oven (make sure you turn them halfway through) for around 25mins.
- Whilst the koftes are cooking, heat the oil into a large pan (or a fryer if you have one). If you do not have a thermometer then use a chip to test the heat of the oil, if you dip a chip in and it begins to sizzle then the oil is ready. Do not over load the pan and make sure the chips have room to cook (you may need to cook them in batches). Using a flat ladle with holes, turn the chips every so often. Once lovely and golden, tip them into a bowl lined with kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil and season with salt.
- Place all of the salad ingredients into a large bowl, along with the dressing ingredients and give it a really good mix. This is quite an acidic salad dressing in order to through the richness of the meat and chips but if you prefer it sweeter you could add honey or pomegranate molasses.
- Once the koftes are brown and slightly crispy on the outside, life them out of the oven and serve with the chips, salad and plenty of Turkish Chilli Sauce. Enjoy!
