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


  • Preheat air fryer to 390 F (200C).
  • 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 or meatballs. Spray the basket of the air fryer with a little olive oil spray.
  • Add about 1/2 the kafta meatballs or patties to the air fryer basket. Air fry for 10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown, and cooked through if you cut into one, it'll depend on the size of the meatballs or patties.
  • Repeat the second batch of meatballs. Once all the kabobs



  • You can also use all beef or all lamb. I usually do a mix of both or all beef.
  • Storing leftovers: Leftovers will last tightly covered in the fridge for 3-4 days and can be frozen for 2 months.
