Mushroom and ostrich koftas
|250 g||brown mushrooms — chopped|
|1 Tbs||fresh chillies — 573|
|salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|1/2||onion — chopped|
|lemon — zest only|
|1 tsp||coriander — ground|
|2 tsp||cumin — ground|
|1||fresh parsley — small bunch|
|8||wooden barbeque skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes if you’re braaing them)|
Fry the mushrooms in the olive oil with a pinch of salt until the mushrooms are beginning to brown and all the water has evaporated from the pan. Set aside to cool.
Once cooled, place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until everything is well blended and comes together.
Form into 8, equally-sized koftas and insert the skewers.
Either fry on a griddle pan, grill or braai the koftas for approximately 8 minutes, turning to brown all sides, until cooked through.
Squeeze over fresh lemon juice just before serving.
Enjoy with tzatziki, tomato and red onion salad and tortilla wraps.
