“This colourful family favourite is really fun to put together. Quick pickled cabbage brings a hit of extra flavour, and with just five ingredients, it’s an easy one to rustle up. I’m using shop-bought tortillas here, but feel free to make your own – simply check out the easy swaps below to find out how. Have fun with it! ”
- 250 g minced lamb
- 2 teaspoons rose harissa , plus extra to serve
- 250 g red cabbage
- 2 seeded wholemeal tortillas , or flatbreads
- 2 tablespoons cottage cheese
- Put a griddle pan on a high heat.
- Scrunch the minced lamb and harissa in your clean hands until well mixed.
- Divide into 6 pieces, then shape into koftas with your fingertips, leaving dents in the surface to increase the gnarly bits as they cook.
- Griddle for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until sizzling and golden.
- Meanwhile, shred the red cabbage as finely as you can. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar, then scrunch together to quickly pickle it.
- Warm your tortillas or flatbreads, sprinkle over the cabbage, spoon over the cottage cheese, add the koftas, drizzle with a little extra harissa, and tuck in.
– Try pork or beef mince in place of the lamb, no problem.
– No cottage cheese? A dollop of natural yoghurt, or a sprinkling of feta cheese would be equally delicious.
– White cabbage or carrot would work in place of the red cabbage.
– You could use pitta bread instead of a tortilla or flatbread, or you could make your own. For easy homemade flatbreads, start by placing a large dry non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. In a bowl, mix 100g of plain flour with 1 pinch of sea salt, 50ml of water and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until you have a dough. Halve, then roll out each piece on a flour-dusted surface until just under ½cm thick. Cook for 1 minute on each side, or until golden and almost a little gnarly, turning halfway. Simple!
