  • 2 tsp dried coriander leaf
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ small red onion finely diced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • tsp freshly ground black pepper

For The Chopped Salad

  • 10 small spring onions (green onions) finely chopped
  • 50 g pine nuts
  • ½ red cabbage (approx 800g) finely chopped
  • 2 large cucumber finely chopped
  • 480 g black olives pitted and halved
  • 20 g fresh coriander (cilantro)

For the tahini dressing

  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • a pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) or 180°C (350°F) for fan assisted.
  • Add the lamb mince to a large mixing bowl along with all the dried herbs, spices, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix the ingredients together thoroughly.
  • Divide the mixture evenly into 30 balls then press into oblong/flat sausage shapes, about 1 cm thick.
  • Arrange the koftas across a shallow oven tray and bake for 15-17 minutes until completely cooked through.
  • The tahini sauce will provide 10 servings. This can be made fresh each time you prepare your salad or you can make a batch to last a few days, simply divide the ingredients accordingly. To prepare the tahini sauce add the tahini, water, lemon juice and the garlic to a small mixing bowl with a pinch of salt. Whisk together until smooth.
  • To assemble your salad, add the diced spring onions, cabbage, cucumber, pine nuts and olives to a serving bowl or lunch box. Drizzle over the tahini dressing and top with 3 koftas and scatter with fresh coriander.
