Full of fresh herbs and spices, beef kofta has always been delicious. Now we've made it even better with this low-fat version.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh continental parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 brown onion, quartered
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground mild paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
  • 10 saffron threads
  • 1 tablespoon hot milk
  • 200ml container skim-milk natural yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander, extra
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Line a large baking tray with foil. Place parsley, fresh coriander and onion in the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add mince, ground coriander, cumin, paprika, allspice and season with salt and pepper. Process until well combined and paste-like.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Use your hands to mould a heaped tablespoonful of beef mixture around a wooden skewer into a 7cm pointed-ended sausage. Place on the lined tray. Repeat with remaining beef mixture and skewers. Cover and set aside.
  3. Place the saffron and hot milk in a small bowl and set aside. Combine the yoghurt, extra fresh coriander, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Brush the kofta with a little of the oil and cook under preheated grill, turning carefully once and brushing with the oil, for 5-8 minutes or until browned and just cooked through.
  5. Add saffron mixture to yoghurt mixture and mix well. Serve kofta with saffron yoghurt.
