We have to leave the coriander out of this recipe. I can’t stand coriander and I always know when it’s in something!

The lamb koftas are syn free and the yogurt dip is 3 syns for the whole serving.

Lamb Koftas with Mint Yogurt Dip


For the koftas –

  • 500g lean minced lamb (5% fat or less)
  • 1 tbsp Ras-El Hanout
  • Small bunch parsley, finely chopped
  • Small bunch coriander, finely chopped
  • Salt and Pepper

For the mint yogurt dip

  • 175g fat-free Greek yogurt
  • Half a cucumber
  • Clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tbsp mint jelly (I got mine from Tesco. At the time of publishing, it was 1.5 syns per tablespoon. Please check current syn values)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Put the mince in a bowl with the herbs, Ras-El Hanout and salt and pepper. Mix well then divide into 6 and shape around skewers. For a buffet, you can use small balls of mixture and shape around a cocktail stick.
  2. Chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes
  3. While the koftas are chilling, peel the cucumber then scoop out the seeds.
  4. Grate the cucumber onto a clean tea towel and use the tea towel to squeeze out the excess liquid.
  5. Place in a bowl with the yogurt, garlic and mint jelly and mix well. Season to taste and keep in the fridge until needed.
  6. Grill the koftas, turning frequently until cooked through.
  7. They can be eaten warm or cold.
