all details

These spicy little chicken koftas are great for early autumn entertaining, even the skewer is edible. They're also quite delicious cold, just perfect for those three minutes that you'd allocated for lunch time.

Ingredients

Chicken koftas

12 fresh cobs baby corn

1 large brown onion, finely diced

4 cloves garlic, finely grated

extra virgin olive oil

3 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika (pimenton)

1 tsp chilli powder

600g chicken mince, preferably thigh

3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs

1 large egg, lightly whisked

1 green chilli, chopped

1 handful coriander leaves, chopped

salt flakes

freshly ground black pepper

Avocado puree

2 ripe avocadoes

15ml extra virgin olive oil

1/2 a lemon, juiced

salt flakes

Method

1. For the avocado puree, process the avocadoes, olive oil and lemon juice with about 20 millilitres of water until you have a light, smooth paste, and season.

2. Preheat your oven to 180C fan-forced or 200C conventional.

3. Blanch the baby corn for 20 seconds in boiling water, then refresh in cold water.

4. Gently fry the onion and garlic in olive oil until softened, add the cumin, paprika and chilli powder and cook for a further minute or until fragrant. Take off the heat and add to a large bowl. Add the chicken, breadcrumbs, egg, chilli and coriander, season and combine until evenly mixed.

5. Divide your kofta mix into 12 even portions, moisten your hands with water and shape each portion around the fat end of the corn cobs.

6. Brown the koftas in a large frying pan with a little olive oil. Transfer to a lined baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with the avocado puree.
