• 1 cup McKenzie’s Chick Peas

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 2 tsps ground cumin

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • 400g lamb mince

  • ¼ cup chopped coriander

  • McKenzie’s Australian Natural Sea Salt (Coarse Grind) 

  • McKenzie’s Black Pepper (Coarse Grind) 

  • Yoghurt Dip

  • 1 cup Greek style natural yoghurt

  • 1 small cucumber, grated (squeeze out excess liquid)*

  • 2 tbs finely chopped mint

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 lemon, juiced


  • 1.

    Place chickpeas and 3 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for approximately 45 minutes until tender.

  • 2.

    Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes until soft. Add the ground cumin and coriander and cook for a further 2 minutes until fragrant. Remove the pan and set aside.

  • 3.

    Blend the chickpeas in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and add the onion mixture, the lamb mince and the chopped coriander. Mix thoroughly with your hands. Season with salt and pepper.

  • 4.

    Use your hands to mould a heaped tablespoonful of lamb mixture around a wooden skewer into a 6cm pointed–ended sausage. Repeat with remaining lamb mixture and skewers.

  • 5.

    Heat the remaining oil over high heat in the frying pan. In batches, cook the koftas tossing frequently until browned and cool through. Alternatively brush with the kofta with the remaining oil and cook under a preheated grill, turning carefully once for 5-8 minutes or until browned and just cooked through.

  • 6.

    Prepare the yoghurt dip by combining all the ingredients and season to taste.
