Print Recipe


  • 2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 tbsp Cinnamon Chili Seasoning
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup oil (to coat)


To Make the Koftas:

  • In a large bowl combine the ground lamb and seasoning.
  • Mix and divide into 8 equal portions (4 ounces each). I used a kitchen scale.
  • Roll each portion into a LARGE meatball.
  • One at a time, take a meatball and roll into a log/sausage form (about 6 inches long).
  • Thread onto a skewer, and slightly flatten. (I used metal skewers. You can use bamboo, but be sure to soak them in water first).
  • Brush koftas on both sides with oil and set aside till ready to grill.

To Grill the Koftas:

  • Preheat grill to medium-high.
  • Grill koftas approximately 6 minutes per side (turning once). Internal meat temperature should be 160º F.
  • Remove from grill onto a serving platter.
  • ENJOY!


Have fun with this recipe. Try different seasonings, or switch out the meat if you like. Serve as a wrap, or as the main dish with a few sides.
