  1. Preheat the grill just before cooking and line the grill rack with tin foil. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and whiz for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture comes together. (Or knead the mixture in a mixing bowl until it forms a ball in the centre of the bowl.)
  2. You will also need 8 wooden kebab skewers, (soaked in water for 30 minutes).
  3. Divide the mixture into 8 then carefully mould round the drained kebab sticks, pressing the mixture firmly onto the sticks.
  4. Brush the koftas with a little of the oil then place on the foil lined grill rack and cook under a pre heated grill for 8-10 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. Turn occasionally during grilling and brush with a little of the oil as necessary.

Serve with a Mediterranean salad and crusty bread or in pitta breads with lots of chopped fresh parsely.
