Easy lamb kofta (580 calories per serve)

I’m trying this new diet where I only eat one proper meal a day. Instead of lunch, I have a couple handfuls of nuts, fruits and rice crisps. The idea is that while you might eat more during your one meal, it wouldn’t be double of your usual meal and therefore you are still managing to eat less throughout the day. I probably wouldn’t be able to keep up with this diet for long but so far, so good. I’ve already lost 1kg in the first week! So anyway, lamb kofta is my meal of the day and it was so easy to make and tasted so good that it was well worth all the calories.

Serves 6

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 20 mins

1.2kg lamb mince
7 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tbsp ground coriander
5 tbsp mint, finely chopped

Add all the ingredients together and shape the mince into little sausages.

Oil and heat up a grill pan and grill the mince sausages for 5-10 minutes until cooked through.

Serve with some pide bread and yoghurt with cucumber slices. Garnish with any left over mint.
