2014 Recipe Challenge

I decided in January that my food challenge for 2014 was to try a new recipe at least once a month, my two new recipes for January were the Moraccan Turkey Kofta kebabs pictured on an earlier post, this was for the Mumsnet Wholegrain Challenge I had been picked to participate in and also the Lamb Rogan Josh curry paste served with brown rice. the recipe for the Turkey Koftas is as follows : 1 tbsp rapeseed oil 1 bunch spring onions, chopped 2 tsp harissa paste 500g pack minced turkey breast 8 dried apricots, finely chopped 50g rocket 4 wholemeal pittas, toasted To serve: tzatziki I omitted the dried apricots as I cannot stand them but it still worked well Instructions 1.Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the spring onions and harissa paste for 1-2 minutes until golden. 2.Using a bowl, stir this into the raw turkey mince with the apricots. 3.Mould into 8 thick sausage shapes and thread onto 8 skewers. 4.Place under a grill for 15 minutes, turning occasionally until golden and cooked throughout. 5.Fill the pittas with rocket and top with the koftas. Serve with a dollop of tzatziki. or make into burgers and serve in a wholemeal roll. The recipe for the Jamie Oliver's Rogan Josh paste is here : Rogan Josh paste 2 cloves garlic 1 thumb-sized piece fresh root ginger 75 g jarred roasted peppers 1 tablespoon paprika 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 2 teaspoons garam masala 1 teaspoon turmeric ½ teaspoon sea salt 2 tablespoons groundnut oil 2 tablespoons tomato puree 1 fresh red chilli 1 small bunch fresh coriander 2 teaspoons cumin seeds 2 teaspoons coriander seeds 1 teaspoon black peppercorns Mix together and use as you would a jar or packet of curry powder, it can be frozen
