I made this meal tonight for my man-friend as he has been working hard all week and deserved a yummy meal, this is one of his favorites!
Lamb Kofta - Aussie BBQ style!
Ingredients - Kofta Meat Balls
Ingredients - Tzatziki Sauce
I don't like to commit too strongly to measurements in my recipes, as things can change based on what you have in the fridge or on the balcony or in the pantry... like this arvo our basil plant needed a trim so I chucked a bunch of it in the kofta... Not quite a traditional kofta but good for not wasting anything.
I mixed the following ingredients in this kofta:
Then roll it into balls about 3 cm in diametre.
I used the perri perri sauce because it was in the fridge and I prefer to use sauce to hold mince together not eggs... I read somewhere that you shouldn't use eggs in meatballs, but blow me down I can't remember where! Do you know? Could it be Heston? I listen to most of what he says.....
For the Tzatziki I used:
Mix this all together in a bowl - if it's your first time watch the garlic, it can be overpowering, remember you can always add more but it's tricky to remove once its in there...
Then I chopped up some salad and openned a pack of Lebanese bread.
For cooking the meatballs I shallow fried them on the side burner of the BBQ.
It was pretty easy, I put 1 cm of light oil in the bottom of the pan and kept the meatballs moving every 30 seconds (don't forget to dispose of your oil properly - do not chuck it down the sink!).
Plus watch out for the splatter, it burns like hot oil surprisingly enough...
Place all the elements together on a platter for serving if you want it to look special - otherwise do as I do and save washing up by presenting it on a wooden chopping board.
Yatzee! Yummy dinner!!
We followed this meal up with a furry friend each! Best Aussie choccies ever!!
It rained in Darwin tonight, which is great because it means the wet season is coming.
Till next time - BBQ well my friends!
