    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      COMBINE beef, GRATED red onion, parsley, mint, allspice, GRATED lemon rind and juice of lemon in bowl.
    2. 2
      Make in 7 or 8 rolled sausages.
    3. 3
      SPRAY pan with oil and cook beef until cooked.
    4. 4
      NOTE: To make it easier to cook, make sure sausages or rolled evenly.
    5. 5
      NOTE: I put a plate and a can from the pantry on top to help to brown evenly.
    6. 6
      In separate bowl, COMBINE vanilla low-fat yogurt and mint sauce (I used from the bottle; thick or thin will do).
    7. 7
      Will serve with grape tomatoes and Bill Granger's Spiced Pumpkin recipe listed at ZAAR!
    8. 8
    9. 9
      **UPDATED NOTE: If the combination FEELS dry, you can add up to 2 Tablespoon of Greek Yogurt too as if the mixture is ultra dry before you grill, it will taste like that too!

      These koftas are delicious and perfectly seasoned! I thought a cup of mint was way too much, but nope- it was just the right amount. I did however use a different sauce. I just made my usual tzatziki, but added two drops of mint extract. We had this with chickpea pie, and it was a great meal.

      WOW!!!! This was so goooooood! The only thing I did different was leave out the sauce, and instead I used my own Tahini sauce. My husband said that this was," the best meal I have ever made"...

      I have just made this recipe for the Zaar recipe swap @ 16 May 2008 and was very impressed with the way the flavours all complimented one another. the yogurt was so perfect with the way it offset the tartness of the herbs. Supurb is too light of a word and doesn't do this dish justice! Thumbs up mickeydownunder :-)
