What are Lamb Koftas?
Lamb koftas are delicious tender morsels made from ground lamb, blended with a medley of spices and herbs. These delicious meatballs are then simmered in a rich curry sauce, infusing them with even more flavour and depth. Originating from the Middle East and South Asia, koftas have become a beloved dish worldwide, cherished for their versatility and exquisite taste.
Best Method For Cooking Kofta
For the best results in cooking kofta, particularly if you're aiming for even browning and maintaining their shape, the oven-baked method is a game-changer. By placing the shaped kofta on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and baking them in a preheated oven, you ensure that each kofta cooks evenly from all sides.
This method not only helps in achieving that desirable golden-brown exterior but also prevents the koftas from falling apart when added to the curry sauce. Additionally, baking the koftas allows them to firm up slightly, making them easier to handle and ensuring they hold their shape beautifully when immersed in the delicious curry sauce.
To complement the bold flavors of the Lamb Kofta Curry, we recommend serving it with a refreshing mint yoghurt sauce. The coolness of the yoghurt and the brightness of the mint provide a delightful contrast to the richness of the curry, creating a harmonious balance of flavors that is simply irresistible. Plus, the mint yoghurt adds a refreshing element to the dish.

1. Basmati Rice or Pilau: Steamed fragrant basmati rice or vibrant pilau rice serves as the ideal canvas for soaking up the rich flavours of the lamb kofta curry. Their fluffy texture and subtle nutty aroma complement the bold spices and tender meat, enhancing every mouthful of the dish.
2. Cauliflower Rice for a Low-Carb Twist: For those looking to cut back on carbs without sacrificing flavor, this Roasted Cauliflower Rice offers a delicious alternative. Light and fluffy, cauliflower rice absorbs the savory curry sauce just like its grain-based counterpart, providing a satisfying base for your lamb kofta while keeping the meal light and nutritious.
