Asian Pork Koftas. This dish is embarrassingly easy and is lower in fat than you would expect. Of course, it is another accidental dish. We were having a tagine with leftover roast lamb and I was told that there was nowhere near enough to feed the family! Needing to reassure everyone that they wouldn't starve I ransacked the fridge and here is the result!
Start by rough chopping some chilli, garlic, ginger and coriander and placing in a food processor with lean minced pork, egg and crunchy peanut butter. Whizz until it comes together. If you don't have a processor just mince everything and combine.
Divide the mixture into eight and form around small wooden skewers.
I added a tiny bit of oil and cooked them on a griddle as they get nice and caramelised but you could soak the wooden skewers and grill them for about 10 minutes instead, turning regularly.
So these Asian Pork Koftas are simple, quick and fairly healthy too......except they go lovely with sweet chilli sauce and sour cream!
Let me know what you think of them.
