    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • &frac 12 tsp cayenne pepper
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 500g essential Waitrose New Zealand lamb mince
    • 1 essential Waitrose aubergine
    • 1 pack essential Waitrose plum tomatoes

    • 20g pack flat-leaf parsley

Grate ½ red onion and fi nely chop ½ the parsley, then stir into a bowl with the lamb, ground cumin, cayenne pepper and the zest of ½ lemon. Crush the garlic, add to the mix and season.

    3. Heat a griddle pan on a medium-high heat. Slice the aubergine into 1cm rounds, brush with 1 tbsp olive oil, season and griddle for 2Ð3 minutes on each side; set aside. Brush the koftas with ½ tbsp olive oil and griddle for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through.
    4. Meanwhile, deseed and chop 2 tomatoes, then toss with the marinated red onion, remaining parsley leaves and remaining ½ tbsp olive oil; season. Toast 4 pitta breads, then split open and serve with the koftas, aubergine, red onion salad and a little natural yogurt.
