Delicious Lamb Koftas

lamb koftaI love lamb. But do not eat it that often as lamb chops can be quite expensive.

This lamb kofta recipe is great as it is relatively cheap, delicious, easy and the kids love it. Oh it is also quick and healthy!

Lamb is also very Australian and although this is a traditional Greek recipe, the combination is perfect for this Australia day.
