  • Put all the ingredients, except the rosemary and oil, into a mixing bowl and mix well.
  • Separate the meat into 6 portions and work into a long oval shape.
  • Push the skewer through the center of the meat so that the meat covers one end of the skewer.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan or BBQ plate on high.
  • Put a dash of olive oil in the frying pan once hot and place the koftas in the pan.
  • Brush the koftas with olive oil using rosemary sprig then leave the sprig in the pan.
  • Turn the koftas after 2 minutes or when charred on one side.
  • Turn again after 2 minutes and reduce the heat to medium for 8 minutes. Keep an eye on the underside so as not to burn.
  • Turn again and cook for a further 8 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove and serve with a side of sour cream and cucumber dip.
