Easy turkey kofta kebabs

I use turkey mince a lot in cooking it's a bit lighter in taste than beef and for this recipe it helps to hold the shape of the koftas better. I know lamb is traditional for koftas but you can't really get extra lean lamb mince unless you get it minced yourself.

This is a really quick recipe too just make up the mix, shape it, pop in the oven and its ready really quickly.

I served them in a pitta bread but there aren't any healthy extra pitta breads now (there used to be) but they are also good with salad and SW friendly chips or wedges.

Easy turkey kofta kebabs

500g turkey mince (less than 5% fat)
1 red onion (grated)
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder (or 1-2 cloves grated)
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
low calorie spray oil

Preheat the oven to gas 6 /200/400


Place all the ingredients together apart from the oil in a mixing bowl and just mix it all together really well the best method is to get your hands in and squish it all (children love doing this!)


Shape in either 8 sausage shapes or 4 large sausage shapes, Spray with oil and place in an foil lined tray or use a disposable foil tray (saves clean up later) and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes until browned.

Syn free koftas (pitta bread approximately 6-7 syns if used)
