  • 1/2 lb ground beef 250 g
  • 1/2 lb ground lamb 250 g
  • 1/2 onion, grated or pulsed in a food processor
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • small handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp seven spice or all spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • pinch red chili flakes


  • Add all the ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well until combined. You can use gloved hands or a spoon to mix. I prefer using hands!
  • Form the meat mixture into oblong kebab shapes like pictured. Place on parchment lined baking sheet, and chill in fridge until the oven heats.
  • Heat the oven to 350 F (180C). Bake the kafta for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Optional, heat the oven to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes to get golden brown crispy edges on the kafta.
