  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sumac

  • Extra pinch sumac and fresh pita to garnish


  1. To make the tahini sauce; combine in a small jar all of the ingredients, stir well and set aside.
  2. Attach the dice blade to your KitchenAid 9 cup food processor, place the lid on and feed the onion through to dice. Followed with parsley and mint leaves.
  3. Add the lamb mince, spices and a pinch of salt. Blitz until it is well combined. Turn the food processor off, remove the blade and add in the pine nuts. Mix through with a spatula.
  4. Using clean hands, shape the koftas around the wooden skewers.
  5. Heat up a heavy base fry pan to medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the koftas in batches until lightly golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  6. To make the fattoush salad; combine the diced tomatoes, cucumber, radish and parsley in a bowl. Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice and sumac. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat.
  7. To make the dried pita bread chips; add fresh pita bead brushed with olive oil to an oven at 180C degrees for 10-15 minutes or until dried and crispy. Break up with your hands.
  8. Add the dried pita bread chips to the salad just before serving to prevent them becoming soggy.
  9. Serve the salad and koftas with the tahini sauce drizzled over the top followed with an extra sprinkle of sumac.
