For the beef:
- 1 box Deliciou Plant-Based Beef
- 2 tsp ground coriander seed
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp paprika

- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

- 1 cup cold water
- ½ cup unsweetened coconut yoghurt
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice, plus zest
- 4-6 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
- In a large bowl, mix together all the beef ingredients above.
- Use a heaped tablespoon of the mixture for each kofta and mould into short sausage-like shapes. You can skewer them to make them easier to pick up or keep them as is. Pan fry in 3 Tbsp oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until golden brown on all sides.
