mint yoghurt:
7oz natural yoghurt
bunch of fresh mint, chopped
1tbsp sugar
1/2tsp salt
tortillas:
14oz self raising flour
1/2tsp salt
1/2 pint warm water
3tbsp oil plus extra for frying
(Make the tortillas first so they can cool)

kofta’s:
14oz lamb mince
1tsp cumin seeds
1tsp coriander seeds
1tsp turmeric powder
1tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, minced (optional)
bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
pinch of cinnamon powder

Set the oven to 220c (gas 7).
Add the flour and salt to a large bowl, then add the oil and water.
bring together to make a soft dough.
turn out onto a floured working surface and knead for 2-3 minutes, divide into eight equal pieces.
Roll out to the size of a dinner plate and about 2mm thick,
heat 1tbsp of oil in a large frying pan, when hot add the rolled out tortillas and cook for 1-2 minutes on either side.
Repeat until you have cooked them all and set aside to cool.
Next for the mint yoghurt, add all the ingredients to a serving bowl and mix well, put this in the fridge to rest and let the mint flavour the yoghurt.
Now the koftas, toast the seeds in a clean dry pan until they release a lovely aroma, tip into a pestle and mortar and grind to a powder or you can use a cup and the end of a rolling pin.
Place all the ingredients and spices in a large mixing bowl and combine everything really well, take some of the lamb mixture (about the size of a golf ball) and roll into a sausage shapes (should make about six).
place on a grill rack, then into the oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
this serves 2 people, if you want to make more just add more of the spices, to every pack of mince add 1tsp cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric.
