Something Different with Mince: Beef Kofta

Food these days is becoming more expensive and I actively try to keep our food bills down. But sometimes having sausages and mince every week becomes tiresome. I feel like there are only so many things you can do with mince, so am always looking for something a little different.  I bought Karen Martini's Everyday Cookbook a while a go and haven't cooked a single thing from it. It does however have a handy mince section, and that is where I found this delightful beef kofta recipe. Although she minces her own beef, I have substituted it with normal everyday mince from the supermarket.  Make some homemade flat breads, hummus and tzatziki with this recipe here to go with it and enjoy. 


500g mince
1 red onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2.5 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons fresh mint
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tsp salt flakes
black pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients in bowl and then mould along skewers. Pretty easy really. Also just a note when cooking, they do not take long to cook at all maybe 3-4 mins. Do not overcook them or they will become really dry.
