Greek Lamb Kofta Balls with Tzatziki

Wrap the koftas in a flatbread, add a good dollop of the tzatziki along with some feta salad. Close your eyes, take a bite and you will be instantly transported to a sunny beach on a Greek island. 


  1. Take all the kofta ingredients along with a good pinch of salt and pepper, a little drizzle of olive oil and give it a good mix. Form into little meatballs, a bit small than a golf ball. Place onto a baking tray cover with parchment paper then cover the whole tray with clingfilm and pop into the fridge to set, leave for 20-30 minutes.
  2. When you are ready to cook the koftas get a frying pan over a high heat with a little drizzle of olive oil. You want to fry the kofta balls for around 7-10 minutes or till cooked through.
  3. To make the tzatziki simple mix all the ingredients together. Pop into a bowl and chill.


Service the kofta balls on some flatbreads with a nice dollop of the tzatziki and a little feta salad.
