1kg Cliffe Bank Mince Beef
1 large onion (diced)
1 red chilli (diced)
5 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp caraway seeds
Fresh ginger (thumb size)
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp mango chutney
3 tbsp ground almonds
Tzatziki (recipe online)
Preheat oven to 180°C Fan or use your BBQ. Grease paper 2 large baking trays for chilling.
Combine olive oil, onion, red chilli and crushed garlic cloves in a frying pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, caraway seeds and fresh ginger, frying for just a minute or so until you can smell the spices. Leave to cool.
In a large bowl, add the cooled spices to 1kg of Cliffe Bank mince beef. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients until the meat is consistent. Now add the dry ingredients of ground cumin, ground turmeric and garam masala. Mix in the mango chutney and use the ground almonds to achieve the correct texture (like a burger, not too wet).
Grab a large meatball sized amount of the mixture into your hands and shape it like a sausage. Place each Kofta onto a baking tray with grease proof paper.
Once shaped, place baking trays into the fridge to chill before cooking.
Cook in a preheated oven at 180°C Fan for 20-25mins or 10-15 minutes on the BBQ.
