Kefta are a deliciously spiced Moroccan kebab usually made with lamb or beef. I’ve gone mostly, traditional with these using cumin, paprika, coriander and parsley. If you want to give them a bit of a kick, you can also add a little cayenne pepper (yes, I like mine spicy). The minted yoghurt finishes them off and our recipe of course includes prebiotic fibre for gut health. Serve them with flat bread and salad on a balmy summer evening for that real Moroccan feel.
