lamb koftas with mint sauce

Minted Lamb Kebab

Cowbridge Kitchen

If you are looking for something a little different to do with your minced lamb other than Shepherd's Pie then take a look at this recipe for Minted Lamb koftas, some people call them kebabs.

What ever you call them these lamb koftas taste delicious and are ideal as a starter or a great idea to put on the BBQ this summer.

I like to serve these Lamb Koftas with a Yogurt and Mint dip and maybe some Homemade Coleslaw.
