  • 1Carefully assemble the processor with the grey spindle and green S-blade™ in the bowl. Add half the lamb and process until evenly ground. Transfer to a mixing bowl and repeat with the remaining lamb.
  • 2Add the onion, garlic, spices, zest, pepper flakes, salt and black pepper to the processor bowl and process to form a paste, scraping down the side occasionally. Return the lamb to the processor with the spice paste and process until just combined.
  • 3Divide the lamb mixture into 8 equal portions. Form each portion into a sausage shape, approximately 4-inches long. Lightly brush with the oil.
  • 4Heat a grill pan or barbecue on high heat. Cook the koftas, in batches, until browned all over and just cooked through.
  • 5Serve kofta with pickled cabbage, tabbouleh, yogurt and flat bread, if desired.
