Beef Koftas


Every few weeks we have a 'build a burger night' in our house which is always well received, especially by hubby. On this occasion though I decided to try something a little bit different and did a 'build a kofta night' instead. I served the koftas with pitta breads, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, sour cream, chilli sauce and also some rice. They were fantastic, and although not totally authentic, they will become a regular I think!

Ingredients:
Koftas
500g Minced Beef or Lamb
1 Onion, grated
Thumb of Ginger, grated
6 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
Coriander
1 TBSP Chilli Sauce

Serve with Pitta's, Red Onion, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Sour Cream, Chilli Sauce and if you're really hungry Rice too!!

Method:
Step 1: To make the koftas, put all of the kofta ingredients into a big bowl, along with salt and pepper and mix together, form into balls. Grill for 8-9 minutes, turning once or twice.
Step 2: Toast Pittas and prepare salad

  5. Even just that pattie with ginger inside sounds so good to me. They look wonderful in the pita with all those veggies.
    BTW, I won't leave for my travels till the end of Oct. I'll probably miss all the good weather, but I promise not to complain.

  12. Reminds me of when we have fajitas, I lay all the salad, wraps, salsa etc out in bowls so we can help ourselves and we have a 'picnic' with the blanket on the floor. These look so good so I might have to ditch the fajitas and make these instead!

  16. I LOVE this idea.

    (You can tell the kids plus the hour away grocery store kicked my butt today because my blog comments have been short and boring--but seriously, I think this is a great idea--loads of party possibilities).

  18. I would be craving this pasta too! I am craving it right now and have never had it before - but it has all the magic words - butternut squash, pine nuts and chorizo! YUM!

    I love koftas too by the way! I am planning on making some lentil ones this weekend!

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
