Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into large, bite-sized pieces

Add the potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 15-20 min or until they're fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and leave them to steam dry in the pot

2 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Meanwhile, add the white wine vinegar, a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] sugar to a large bowl and stir until they're dissolved

Grate 250g [500g] red cabbage, discarding the tough stem

Add the grated cabbage to the bowl, give everything a good mix up and set aside until later to pickle slightly

3 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Peel the brown onion[s] and cut in half

Grate 1/2 [1] onion and slice the remaining onion finely (you'll use the sliced onion in step 5)

Add the grated onion, panko breadcrumbs, baharat, lamb mince and a generous pinch of salt to a large bowl

4 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Knead the meat thoroughly with clean hands for 2-3 min (this helps the mixture hold together when cooking) then shape into 6 [12] koftas

Add the koftas to an oiled baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until they're cooked through

5 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a large knob of butter over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion and cook for 4-5 min or until it's softened

6 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Add the chopped garlic, natural yoghurt, tahini paste, the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon to a bowl

Add a splash of cold water and a generous pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your tahini yoghurt

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks

7 Turkish Lamb Koftas With Tahini Yoghurt

Once the onion has softened, add the cayenne pepper (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and tomato paste cook for 1 min

Add the drained potatoes, a drizzle of olive oil and a generous pinch of salt

Crush the potatoes lightly and cook for 5-6 min or until they're starting to crisp

Once crisp, remove from the heat and add the juice of the remaining lemon and chopped parsley
