Quick Beef Koftas

Quick Beef Koftas

With lean beef mince regularly appearing on my meal plan I wanted to do something different.  Quick, full of flavour and spicy!  With all boxes ticked, all you have to decide is what to serve with your koftas.

Ingredients for 2 servings

360g extra lean beef mince
50g spring onion
1-2 chilli
10g fresh coriander
100g onions, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper

 (Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Take the chilli and cut slices for the garnish and add the rest (with or without seeds it’s up to you) into the blender along with the spring onion.
  • Reserve a few strands of coriander for the final garnish and add the remaining coriander (including stalks) into the blender and blend until finely chopped.
  • Add the minced beef to the blender along with seasoning to taste and the garlic powder.
  • Blend for a minute to thoroughly mix everything together.
  • Split the mixture evenly 4 ways before shaping onto skewers.
  • Arrange the sliced onion onto the baking sheet and top with the kofta skewers and bake until they’re cooked through.
  • Serve the kofta on top of the softened onion and garnish with the chilli slices and coriander strands – delicious!


  • Make sure your mince is extra lean, less than 6% of fat per 100g.
  • If you’re using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to stop them burning in the oven.
