Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Serves: 4


For the beef:

  • 1 box Deliciou Plant-Based Beef
  • 2 tsp ground coriander seed
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ red onion, very finely diced
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 cup cold water
To serve:
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut yoghurt
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice, plus zest
  • 4-6 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the beef ingredients above. 
  2. Use a heaped tablespoon of the mixture for each kofta and mould into short sausage-like shapes. You can skewer them to make them easier to pick up or keep them as is. Pan fry in 3 Tbsp oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until golden brown on all sides.
  3. In a bowl combine the coconut yoghurt, mint, lemon juice and lemon zest. Season with salt and stir well.
  4. Serve koftas while hot with yoghurt dip and ta-da! You’ve got a fabulous middle-eastern inspired appetiser! 

Pro tip: Make it into a main meal by adding tabbouleh and rice with lemon zest.
