Ingredients

  • 400 g Minced Lamb
  • 1 tablespoon Mustard Seeds
  • 4 tablespoon Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Spring Onions chopped
  • 2 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • ½ Cucumber
  • 4 tablespoon Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Mint chopped

For the Rice

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 50 g Pine Nuts
  • 1 cup/185g Long Grain Rice
  • 450 ml Water

To Serve

  • Pitta Bread

Instructions

  • Mix the lamb with the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, spring onion, garam masala and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Shape into 8 patties and set aside. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan and fry the patties for a couple of minutes on each side until golden ( you might need to do this in batches).

For the Rice

  • Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and fry until softened. Add the pine nuts and toast for a couple of minutes. Pour in the rice and the water and bring to the boil. Cover and leave to cook over a medium heat for 15 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed.

To Serve

  • Chop the cucumber into ribbons or chunks (whichever you prefer) and stir into the yoghurt along with the mint. Serve the patties with the rice, yoghurt and pitta bread.
