Lamb Kofta and Chapati

The following recipe is extremely simple and doesn’t require a great deal of preparation or cooking time making it perfect for a midweek dinner.



You will need:

300g Lamb Mince

1tsp Ground Ginger

1tsp Garam Masala

1/2 tsp Chilli powder

2 cloves of garlic

handful of mint leaves

handful of coriander leaves

1tsp salt

Place everything in a food processor and blitz until smooth.  With wet hands form the mixture into small balls.  Fry in a hot pan for 7-10 mins until cooked through.  With the last batch fry off some onions and peppers.


This was my first attempt at making Chapatis, I can’t believe how easy they are to make and if you have never tried before I urge you to give it a go!

450g Chapati flour

250ml cold water

Ghee for spreading


Set aside 200g of the flour and reserve for shaping the chapatis.  Add the water to a bowl containing 250g flour, a little at a time, kneading as you go, until you have a soft, elastic dough. The longer you knead the dough the softer the chapatis will be.   Sprinkle a little of the reserved flour onto a flat surface or board. Divide the dough into eight and shape each piece into a ball. Flatten the balls slightly, then place one onto the floured board. Roll it out into a flat disc flouring the board when necessary.

Heat a griddle or a shallow frying pan. Lay the chapati on the griddle or pan and cook for about 20-30 seconds or until the surface is bubbling. Turn it over and cook the other side for 10-15 seconds. As soon as brown spots appear on the underside, the chapatti is done.  Repeat with the other seven balls, using the remaining flour to roll them out. Stack them up as they are cooked, placing a sheet of kitchen towel between each one to absorb any moisture.  Spread melted ghee over one side for added taste.
