Lamb Koftas
  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and gently mix with your hands until well combined but not overworked. Cover and chill for up to one day in advance. Shape approximately 2 1/2 ounces of meat mixture into a 3" long log, making 13-15 in total. Thread onto skewers and chill until ready to grill.
  2. Preheat heat grill to medium and grill lamb skewers for approximately 12 minutes turning to brown all sides. Meat should no longer be pink and the internal temperature should reach a minimum 160℉. Split pitas and fill with 2 koftas. Top with Minted Yogurt Sauce and desired toppings such as lettuce, sprouts, and onions.
Recipe Notes

Recipe makes approximately 35 ounces of mixture and can be made into burger patties as well.   I used metal skewers, however if using wooden skewers be sure to soak in water according to directions prior to use.

  7. In a large skillet add enough oil to cover bottom 1/4". Heat over medium heat until oil spatters when a drop of water is added. Pan fry chicken pieces approximately 2-3 minutes per side, making sure not to crowd the pan. Remove and drain on paper towel. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces. Keep warm in 200℉ oven.

Chicken fingers can be deep fried using a deep fryer or 1 1/2 - 2 litres of peanut oil maintained at 350℉.
