  1. 01

    To prep, light the Masterbuilt Gravity Series® 1050 Digital Charcoal Grill + Smoker and set it to 650 degrees F.

  2. 02

    For the raita, whisk together yogurt, half and half, sugar and a pinch of salt thoroughly. Set aside.

  3. 03

    For the vegetables, carrots and radishes are recommended, but feel free to use any fall veggie you would like. Toss them with 3 tablespoons olive oil, sumac, sesame seeds, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste.

  4. 04

    For the lamb koftas, in a bowl, combine ground lamb, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons cilantro, 2 tablespoons mint, diced green chilis, diced onions, ginger, garlic, garam masala, cumin, turmeric, chili powder, and a drizzle of olive oil. Roll into oval shaped patties the size of golf balls.

  5. 05

    Put veggies on the grill and turn every few minutes throughout the cooking time. about 10-15 minutes. Do this before preparing your koftas.

  6. 06

    Cook koftas for about 3-4 minutes on each side. If there's a flare up because of drippings, you can move your patties to the edge of the grill.

  7. 07

    Lastly, put your flat bread on the grill for about 30-45 seconds on each side until warm and pliable.

  8. 08

    Slice up grilled radishes, cut pita in half and open it up to form a pocket. Put 2-3 lamb koftas in the pocket with sliced radishes, fresh mint, cilantro, and raita. Place your grilled carrots on the side and drizzle with raita. Enjoy!


There's an app for that.
