Delicious Lamb Kofta with Sweet Potato Flatbread
I decided to do the flatbreads in the oven this time instead of on a skillet, they are much easier to make this way, but they look more like authentic naan breads when done on the skillet, so how you make them is entirely up to you. I use japanese white sweet potatoes for the flatbread, but if these are hard for you to find, you can just use regular sweet potato, the flatbreads will just have a more orange color to them, but the taste will be pretty much the same.
For the lamb kofta I also use a lean cut of lamb, which I ground up in my food processor, as lean ground lamb which is low in syns is pretty hard to find here, if you can get it then great, otherwise you can do what I have done, or substitute with extra lean ground beef.
