Annabel's Lamb Koftas
|If your toddler is very fussy and just pushing food around his plate, it might be a good idea to try him on finger food.|
Iron is the commonest nutritional deficiency in young children. It’s important for growth and development and crucial in the production of healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body including the brain. A deficiency in iron will lead to your child being tired, unable to concentrate properly and more prone to infection.
The best source of iron is red meat so try these lamb koftas, they are good with or without the pitta bread and will make a delicious family meal.
2 onions, chopped
Vegetable oil for frying
7 pitta bread pockets
Sauté one of the onions in the oil until softened. Then mix together the sautéed onion, raw onion, minced lamb and all the remaining ingredients. Transfer to a food processor and chop for few seconds.
Form the mixture into 14 koftas (rissole shapes), roll in flour and sauté until golden and cooked through.
Cut the pitta pockets in half. Spoon a little yoghurt into the pockets and stuff each one with a lamb kofta, slice of cucumber and tomato.
