For the kofte

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 100g red onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • tsp sweet paprika
  • tsp smoked paprika
  • tsp cumin seeds, toasted and ground
  • 120g tomato concasse
  • 720g ground lamb
  • 1 Tbsp fine salt
  • 1 Tbsp mint leaves, chopped

For the dip

  • tsp sumac
  • 150g plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp mint, finely chopped
  • fine salt


Place a pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Sweat the red onions until soft and lightly caramelised, then add the garlic, spices and the chopped tomatoes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.

In a bowl, combine the lamb mince with the cooled spice tomato mix. Add the salt and the chopped mint. Weigh out 60g balls of the mixture and shape onto a metal skewer into a sausage-shape about 10cm long. You should yield approximately 12 kofte.

To make the dip, mix the sumac, yogurt and mint until well combined. Season with salt. Cook the kofte on a preheated Fusion grill to a core temp of 60c – and serve with the dip on the side.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
