Ingredients (serves 8)
4 Lebanese bread rounds
1 cup plain Greek-style yoghurt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
800g lean lamb mince
1 large brown onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
olive oil cooking spray
2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup burghul (cracked wheat)
1/4 cup lemon juice
4 cups chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
Make tabouli: Place tomato, burghul and lemon juice in a bowl. Stand for 30 minutes or until burghul has softened. Add parsley, mint, onion and oil. Toss to combine.
Meanwhile, make lamb kofta balls: Place lamb, onion, cumin, allspice, parsley, egg and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Using hands, roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Spray a barbecue plate or chargrill with oil. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook kofta in batches, turning, for 5 to 7 minutes, or until cooked through.
Cook bread on barbecue for 2 minutes each side or until heated through. Tear into large pieces. Combine yoghurt and cumin in a bowl. Place bread and yoghurt mixture on a platter with kofta. Serve with tabouli.
Tip: You could serve baba ganoush, tahini dip or hommus with the bread instead of the yoghurt.
