Pork kofta wraps recipe
Wraps are a favourite with adults and kids alike. These easy mince koftas are lightly spiced, and delicious served with salad and a herby yoghurt. Put the whole lot in the middle of the table and let everyone serve themselves.
- 500g pork mince
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 tbsp oregano or Greek basil, chopped
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 lemon
- 1 cup natural yoghurt
- 1 tbsp mint, chopped
- 5ml (1 tsp) olive oil, plus extra
- 8 souvlaki or pita bread wraps
- baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, to serve
Soak 8 bamboo skewers in water for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine pork, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Finely grate the zest of the lemon and add it to the bowl. Mix well.
In a small bowl, combine yoghurt, mint and 5ml (1 tsp) olive oil. Set aside.
Take a large handful of pork mixture and press it onto the end of a skewer to form a sausage shape. Continue with other skewers until all of the mixture has been used.
Heat a grill pan or fry pan over high heat. Brush the koftas with a little extra oil and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
Serve with wraps, yoghurt and salad ingredients.
- The best way to combine any mince mixture is with your wet hands.
- You could substitute with beef or lamb mince if you prefer.
