Recipes for Gamers: Easy Lamb Koftas

There’s only one supermarket in my area that offers ground lamb, so ever so often my wifey and I make the pilgrimage there to stock up on some.  This is one of the dishes I usually make with it, and it’s something so easy I consider it appropriate Gamer Food™.


  • 1 kg ground lamb
  • 1 raw egg
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 2-3 pieces loaf bread, torn to small pieces
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp coriander seed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • chili powder to taste
  • dash cinnamon
  • dash clove

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon or several calamansi
  • 1 handful mint leaves, chopped fine, or
  • 1 tbsp mint sauce, or
  • 1 handful coriander leaves, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Chop the onions, grind the spices if whole, and tear up the bread.  Combine with all the other ingredients.  Form into  balls of about 2in diameter and arrange on a baking pan.  Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes.

Combine the ingredients for the sauce and serve with the koftas.
