And the instructions for how to combine all the above into juicy kofte kebabs:

  1. Soak the wooden skewers in water for about 20-30 minutes. This makes sure they don't burn under the grill when you cook the lamb
  2. In a large bowl, combine the minced lamb, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley, ground cumin, ground coriander, salt, and pepper.
  3. Mix everything together until well combined. Divide the mixture into even portions and shape each portion around the end of a skewer, forming a sausage-like shape.
  4. Grill the kebabs over medium heat, turning occasionally, until they are cooked to your liking (this should take about 10-15 minutes).

How to make the jasmin rice 🍚

The ingredients you'll need to make this simple jasmin rice:

  • Jasmine rice: 500g (£1.50)
  • Salt: 1 tsp (£0.10)
  • Water

Simple instructions to make fluffy rice that doesn't stick together:

  1. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear to remove any excess starch.

  2. In a saucepan, combine the rinsed rice, water, and salt. The water level should be about 1 inch above the rice (you can also measure this by placing your finger in and seeing if the water comes up to the first knuckle)

  3. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let it steam for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice grains are separated. When serving use a fork to fluff up the rice

And there you go, a meal fit for a family of four. Don't forget that cooking and eating food can act as a form of Ibadah or worship to Allah if you make the correct intention before you start.
