- 1 lb Ground Lamb
- 4 tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
- 2 tbsp Fresh Mint, chopped
- 1 Jalapeno, finely minced (optional)
- 1/4 White Onion, chopped
- 6 Garlic Cloves
- 2 tsp Ground Cumin
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1 tsp Coriander
- 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/4 tsp Freshly Ground pepper
- 2 tsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, combine the ground lamb with the chopped herbs, garlic, and seasonings. Mix well to make sure the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a large cast-iron (preferably), or parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a small scoop, take about 2 tablespoons of the lamb mixture, using your hands form it into a ball, and place them onto the cast iron. You should have about 18-20 meatballs.
Place the cast iron into the oven and bake the kofta for 15-20 minutes (or until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F), turning them half-way through to ensure even cooking.
Remove from the oven. Top with Fresh Parsley and serve!
