Method

 

Heat oil in a large saucepan, sauté onion and garlic until tender.

Add the cumin and chilli flakes, cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes.

Transfer into a mixing bowl, add the onion mixture, chopped herbs, salt and pepper.

Mix well with your hands.

Roll the lamb mixture into golf size balls and flatten into patties about 1cm thick.

Place on a plate drizzled with a little oil, drizzle the tops of the patties with more oil, ready for cooking.

Cover and chill for about 10 minutes to firm up.

Meanwhile, make the dressing.

Put the mint into a mortar and bash it with the pestle to bruise it.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Transfer to a serving bowl.

Place a griddle pan over a medium high heat.

When hot, grill the koftas for 5 to 6 minutes, turning halfway through so that both sides are well browned.

Serve the koftas warm with the dressing on the side, diced avocado and a chilli sauce.
