Regular burgers are so passé. Give these lamb kofta pita versions a go instead!

Lamb Kofte Mini Pita Burgers


  • For the burgers

  • 400 grams minced lamb

  • 1 small onion, coarsely grated

  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped or grated

  • 2 tablespoons garam masala

  • Bunch coriander, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes

  • To serve

  • 4 pitta bread

  • 2 tomatoes, halved and sliced

  • 1 red onion, sliced (optional)

  • Small pot plain yogurt


  1. Place the mince into a large bowl with all the the onion, garlic, garam masala, coriander and chilli flakes and a good pinch of salt. Mix well with your hands. Pat the mix into small burgers.

  2. To cook, heat grill to its highest setting and lay the burgers in a single layer on a baking tray (you may need to do this in batches, depending on how big your tray is).

  3. Grill on the highest shelf for 5-6 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Pile burgers onto a platter and serve with all the accompaniments, so everyone can construct their own sandwich.
