  • Koftes are an essential element of Turkish cuisine, and for far less than the cost of a restaurant you can make them at home! The onions and chopped coriander add wonderful bite to the minced pork.


    • 450g (1lb) lean minced pork
    • 4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
    • 30ml (2tbsp) fresh chopped coriander
    • 5ml (1tsp) each ground coriander and ground cumin
    • White of 1 small egg
    • Metal skewers


    • Place the pork mince and spring onions in a food processor. Add the fresh coriander, the ground coriander and cumin and the egg white. Season well and process until blended. (Alternatively, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl with clean hands)

    • Divide the mixture into 8 and shape on to metal skewers.

    • Chill for 30 mins then cook under a medium-hot grill for 15-20 mins, turning frequently until the koftes are cooked through.

    • Brush with a little oil towards the end of the cooking time. Serve with rice, salad and cucumber yogurt and sprinkled with a little paprika.
