 How to Make Kofta Kebabs 

Our Kofta Halal Lamb Kebab is a mix of ground lamb, herbs, and spices that are formed onto a skewer and grilled to perfection. This recipe can also be made with halal ground beef.  

The ground meat is mixed with finely chopped onion, parsley, sumac, pepper, and salt.  

Next comes the fun part, shaping the kofta around the skewers. Once the kofta mix is done, firmly press the mixture around a bamboo or metal skewer so that it stays in place. Then, grill to perfection! 

While the skewers are grilling, you can quickly mix up our cool and refreshing Garlic Yogurt sauce that adds just the right flavor to the meat.  

Combine plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice, a garlic clove, olive oil, sumac, and salt, and refrigerate until the meat kebabs are ready.  

Warm pitas and slice tomatoes, cucumber, and onion to garnish the dish. 

 How to Serve Kofta Kebabs 

Serve the kofta kebabs buffet-style, with the kebabs (sprinkled with a bit of sumac for nice color) and warm pita on one platter, the fresh vegetables on another platter, and the garlicky yogurt sauce in a decorative bowl on the side. 

This is a fantastic dish for entertaining guests. Set it all up and let people help themselves. It's always a big crowd-pleaser with friends and family.
