Ingredients

  • 1 x Ainsley Harriott Moroccan Medley Cous Cous
  • 350g (12oz) lean minced beef
  • 4 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 10ml (2 tsp) garam masala
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 120ml (8 tbsp) thick Greek yoghurt
  • 5cm (2in) piece of cucumber (grated and with excess water squeezed out)
  • 1 ripe tomato (finely chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

STEP 1

Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes.

STEP 2

Mix together the minced beef, spring onions, garam masala, cumin and 30ml (2 tbsp) of the Greek yoghurt. Season to taste.

STEP 3

Roll into 6 pieces, each about 7.5cm/3 inches long. Push each one on to a 15cm/6inch bamboo skewer which have been soaked in water.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, make the Ainsley Harriott Moroccan Medley Cous Cous according to the instructions on the sachet and keep warm.

STEP 5

To make the raita, mix the remaining Greek yoghurt in a bowl with the cucumber, tomato, garlic and seasoning.

STEP 6

Pre-heat the grill to its hottest setting. Cook the beef koftas for 10-12 minutes on the grill rack, turning occasionally until nicely browned and cooked through.

STEP 7

Divide the Ainsley Harriott Moroccan Medley Cous Cous between two plates and arrange the beef koftas on top. Drizzle over the raita before serving.
