  1. Light the Masterbuilt Gravity Series™ 1050 Digital Charcoal Grill + Smoker and set it to 650 degrees F.
  2. Raita – Whisk together Yogurt, Half and Half, Sugar and Salt (pinch) thoroughly
  3. Vegetables – Carrots and Radishes are recommended, but feel free to use any fall veggie you would like. Toss them with olive oil (3 Tbsp), Sumac, Sesame Seeds, Oregano, Salt and Pepper to taste.
  4. Lamb Koftas – In a bowl, combine Ground Lamb, Salt (1 tsp), Cilantro (2 tbsp), Mint (2 tbsp), Green Chili, Diced Onions, Ginger, Garlic, Garam Masala, Cumin, Turmeric, Chili Powder, Drizzle of Olive Oil.
  5. Roll into an oval shaped patty.
  1. Put veggies on the grill and turn every few minutes throughout the cooking time (10-15 minutes). Do this before preparing your koftas.
  2. Cook koftas for about 3-4 minutes on each side. If there's a flare up because of drippings you can move your patties to the edge of the grill.
  3. Lastly, put your flat bread on the grill for about 30-45 seconds on each side until warm and pliable.
  1. Slice up grilled radishes, cut pita in half and open it up to form a pocket, put lamb kofta in the pocket with sliced radishes, fresh mint, cilantro, and raita. Place your grilled carrots on the side and drizzle with raita. Enjoy!
