In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Roll lamb mixture to the size of a golf ball then flatten them down to about ½-inch thick. Place patties on a baking sheet greased with oil. Brush oil on patties, loosely cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat a griddle pan on medium-high heat and when hot, cook koftas for 3 minutes per side.
To make yogurt sauce:
1/2 cup plain yogurt - 1 tablespoons tahini - 1/2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice - 1 teaspoons mint leaves, finely chopped - freshly ground black pepper - 1/2 teaspoons cumin.
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients, stir, taste & adjust. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, about 30 minutes.
This can be served with flatbread and yogurt sauce or on sliders with yogurt sauce and muhammara.
