  • 500g lamb mince
  • 1 onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 whole fresh thyme plant (from Sainsbury's)
  • 6 leaves fresh sage
  • 2 fresh green chillies
  • 2 table spoons English mustard powder
  • Lots of black pepper
  • Salt (salt spoon full)
  • Chopped garlic
  • Chopped fresh ginger
  • Madras Curry powder
  • Oil the pan to avoid sticking

I have tried this out in a number of ways: beef mince, beef mince with an egg etc but this is the best yet.

Mix everything except the curry powder, leave to stand if you have time.

Form into koftas.

Oil the pan, add koftas, shake curry powder over all so koftas are oiled and powdered.

Cook for 20 minutes at 200°C
