You'll need

1 Spanish onion 1 kg minced lamb 1 preserved lemon, flesh and pith discarded, skin finely chopped 3 tsp each ground cumin and ground coriander 2 tsp ground chilli 1 egg 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tbsp cumin seeds 100 gm thick natural yoghurt, plus extra to serve 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 3 large carrots, shredded on a mandolin or coarsely grated To serve: flatbread and 1 cup (loosely packed) mint

Method

  • 01
  • Finely chop half the onion and combine in a bowl with lamb, preserved lemon, spices, egg and half the garlic, season generously to taste and mix well to combine. Divide into eight pieces and, working with one piece at a time, mould firmly around a long metal skewer to form a long torpedo shape. Refrigerate while you mould remaining kofta.
