Tell your kids to roll up their sleeves and hand over the ice cream scoop: Who knew you could use it to shape the kefta (traditionally, a ground lamb mixture) into balls and then flatten them into patties using your hands? Dinner has never been this easy, or fun.

Ingredients

Yogurt Sauce

Tomato Salad

Keftas

Bread

Preparation

Yogurt Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tomato Salad

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Keftas

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the oil. With a 2-tbsp (30 ml) ice cream scoop, shape meatballs and flatten them slightly between your hands.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, brown half the meatballs at a time in the oil for about 5 minutes on each side or until the meat is fully cooked. Keep warm.
  4. On a baking sheet, warm up the naan bread in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes. Top each warm naan with the yogurt sauce, meatballs, tomato salad and cilantro leaves, to taste.

Note

The meatballs can be reheated the next day.
