Roasted Potatoes

<< Go Back (4)

Ok so these are what I call koftas   Mine are with beef but lamb works really well. 


500 g mince ( always better if ur own )

Grate 1/2 onion on fine setting

Grate a thumb of fresh ginger 

1/2 cup chopped mixed herbs can include parsley, mint, thyme, oregano, sage – just a bit. Don’t do all at once. Choose your combo

1x tbs each coriander and cumin ground 

I like to use some cardamom just a touch but optional. 

Sprinkle mustard seed and / or nigella seed if u have. Or just a good grind of strong pepper 

Add 1 x chopped chili. To ur liking 

I like to add ceyenne too for another depth 

Salt to taste. 

Press onto skewers. You will have to push quite firmly. I find a square shaped thick one best or rosemary hard sticks. 

I also sometimes add pre cooked quinoa / and or grated carrot if u want to add nutrition value. Play around. Use a Moroccan spice mix if u have instead of all the other spices above. But still keep the herbs. Fresh is better but dried mint works well too. 

Braai them carefully and serve with a spicey dipping sauce.
