Roll into medium sized balls.

In a pan on the stove with a tablespoon of vegetable oil, fry koftas to brown and seal on high heat. A minute should be sufficient.

Bake on the baking tray for 8 minutes until done to your liking.

Serve with tzatziki and coriander and lime pesto (made using Mediterranean Delicacies pine nuts and olive oil)

Suggestion: Arrange in a pita with griddled courgette strips for a quick and filling picnic meal.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
