  • 2/3 cup mint leaves

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chilli

  • 500g lamb mince

  • Salt and pepper, to season

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 1/2 cups San Remo CousCous

  • 1 1/2 cups Massel vegetable liquid stock

  • 1/2 cup sultanas

  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled

  • 3/4 cup natural yoghurt or Greek yoghurt


  • Step 1

    Process the onion and garlic in a processor until finely chopped. Add half the almonds and process until a coarse paste. Add half the mint and the spices and process for 10 seconds until the mint is finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the mince and season with salt and pepper. Using hands, mix until well combined.

    Divide the lamb mixture into 8 portions, shape each portion around a medium metal skewer.

  • Step 3

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan or chargrill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the skewers for 8-10 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, place the couscous in a large heatproof bowl. Add 1½ cups boiling stock and sultanas. Stir with a fork until liquid is moistly absorbed. Cover and stand for 3 minutes. Fluff up the couscous with a fork to separate the grains. Cover and stand for 2 minutes. Fluff up again. Stir through the remaining almonds and mint leaves. Serve topped with kofta, feta and yoghurt.
