  • 800g beef or lamb mince
  • 1 small onion, finely grated or finely chopped
  • pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 6 flatbreads
  • handful of mint leaves
  • pinch of sumac, to serve
  • 3 tbsp pine nuts, toasted, to serve


  • 150g feta, crumbed
  • 50g full-fat greek yogurt


  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • ¼ white or red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 3 spring onions, julienned
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • squeeze of lemon juice


  • STEP 1

    Combine the mince, onion, spices and some seasoning in a bowl and pound with clean hands until really well combined. Divide into 12 balls and mould onto metal skewers. Chill until ready to cook.

  • STEP 2

    Put the feta and yogurt in a small blender and whizz until smooth and creamy. Toss the slaw veg in a large bowl, then whisk the tahini, oil, lemon, a splash of water and a pinch of salt until the consistency of single cream, and fold through the veg. Taste and add more lemon or salt, if you like.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the BBQ and let the larger flames die down, or heat the grill to high. Grill the kofte for 8-10 minutes, turning regularly, until golden brown and cooked through.

  • STEP 4

    Spoon the whipped feta over the warmed flatbreads and add the kofte. Serve with the slaw alongside, and sprinkle over the mint leaves, sumac and pine nuts to serve.
