INDIAN STREET FOOD FISH KOFTA FLATBREAD

INDIAN STREET FOOD KOFTA

Indian street food fish kofta flatbread.  Prep time: 25 minutes. Skill level: Easy peasy recipe by: Rachel Green

Bringing together Indian spices and cool coconut relish, this street-food inspired dish is bursting with gentle chilli heat and fresh fragrant herbs. Quick and easy to prepare, and versatile, it’s great for a mid-week treat.

The method

  1. Roughly chop the fish into small pieces and put into a food processor with all the other kofta ingredients.  Season well and pulse until combined.  Mould into 20 small koftas and pop in the fridge to chill for half an hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine all the relish ingredients and leave to one side.
  3. Add  a little oil to a frying pan and fry the koftas until cooked through – this will take about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve immediately on the warmed flatbreads with the coconut relish.
