500g lean beef mince
1 small brown onion, grated
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated & liquid squeezed out
1/4 cup chopped fresh continental parsley
1 tsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp olive oil
Combine all ingredients (except olive oil) in a bowl, mixing together with your hands. Divide the mixture into 12 portions and shape each into a log.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the koftas and cook, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Replace beef mince with chicken or lamb mince for an alternative.
