Kangaroo Kofta With Cauliflower & Masala Sauce
Instructions
  1. Prepare the kofta by combining the kangaroo mince, half of the grated onion (squeezed of any excess liquid), cumin, coriander and mint in a bowl. Use your hands to mix well.
  2. Roll heaped tablespoons of the mince mixture into 3 logs per serve. Then flatten slightly and insert a skewer ¾ of the way into the kofta. Cover and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes to firm up.
  3. Cook rice according to packet instructions. Preheat oven to 180C and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
  4. Chop cauliflower into florets and toss with half the oil. Spread over the baking tray. Roast for 15 – 20 minutes or until tender. Set aside.
  5. To make the masala sauce, place a frypan over a medium heat, add remaining oil and cook remaining onion until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add ginger, curry powder, and tomato paste, and cook for 1 minute. Add tinned tomatoes and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Then stir through yoghurt.
  6. Once kofta have firmed in the fridge, heat another frypan over a medium heat. Spray pan lightly with cooking oil and cook kofta, turning several times, for 7-10 minutes until browned and cooked through.
  7. Serve kofta with rice and roasted cauliflower covered with masala sauce.
