  2. Add remaining Kofta ingredients and mix well with your hands
  3. With damp hands, divide the meat into 8 equal pieces and push and shape the meat onto 8 skewers
  4. Make them smooth (looks nicer, pictured!) or a bit nubbly (more surface area to brown!)

Cooking

  2. Cook in batches for 5 minutes in total, turning to brown evenly all over

BBQ

BBQ on medium high for about 6 minutes, rotating to brown all over
