Sharing is caring!

The BEST (and easiest) lamb kofta meatball recipe ever! Super tasty lamb meatballs served with spicy couscous and minty yogurt dressing.

Our Moroccan lamb meatballs are super easy to make, they literally take minutes. I usually prepare them in the morning, then just whack them in the oven at dinner time.

I do love how versatile they are too. You can serve with rice or couscous and a salad or do them with pasta or mashed potatoes and a spicy tomato sauce.

I like to serve this with spicy couscous and I cheat here – I use Ainsley Harriot couscous sachets – the Spice Sensation or the Moroccan Medley couscous work best with this recipe.

I usually stir roasted peppers through the couscous and scatter over chopped coriander and flat leaf parsley – just to give it a bit of extra yumminess!

I add a bowl of minty yogurt sauce on the side – to make this simply mix Greek yogurt with a couple of teaspoons of mint sauce. Simple!

Don’t just stick to my ideas though – mix things up for yourself – try…

  • Flavoured rice – the Tilda microwave pouches are a quick option.
  • Stuff the meatballs into pitta breads with salad and minty yogurt or mango chutney
  • Serve with quinoa and roast veggies

How to flavour lamb meatballs

You can flavour up your kofta lamb meatballs any way you fancy – try…

  • Indian spiced – just stir through a couple of spoonfuls of curry paste and then serve with rice and Indian mint sauce.
  • Try Italian – add dried oregano, thyme, garlic, ground fennel seeds and chopped flat leaf parsley and then serve with pasta and tomato sauce.
