1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated
4 tablespoons fresh coriander, finely chopped

Chopped tomato & cucumber salad

Serves 2

Quantity Ingredient
1 large tomato, deseeded and finely chopped
1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
thick greek-style yoghurt
Harissa

Method

  1. Combine the minced beef, onion, cumin, paprika, ground coriander, ginger and fresh coriander in a bowl. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes before shaping into 16 walnut-sized kefta.
  3. For the Chopped Tomato & Cucumber Salad, combine and toss together the tomato, onion, cucumber and parsley in a bowl. Add the oil and lemon juice, season generously with salt and pepper and mix well.
  4. Grill the kefta on a barbecue or a cast iron griddle pan over a medium heat, turning occasionally, for about 5–7 minutes or until cooked. Alternatively, fry in a large frying pan with a little oil over a medium heat.
  5. To assemble, split open the flatbreads with a sharp knife and smear the insides with a little yoghurt and harissa. Divide the kefta and Tomato & Cucumber Salad onto the breads, then gently push the tops down.
