Kofte turkey kebabs, salsa and raita (SW)

Hello huns

It feels that it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a recipe and to be fair whilst being on slimming world a lot of the food I’ve being eating hasn’t been photo/blog worthy. Well that is not on? I’m not a blogger if I can’t take pictures of my food right??? Although this is a slimming world friendly meal you can make this yourself and it tastes glorious, it’s easy and quick to make (as per usual) and it’s going to be a new favourite.

At the moment we have to tag-team meals so one eats first whilst the other settles Baby Pip and then the other eats. It will be strange when we can both eat the same time… will we remember what the other person looks like??


Ingredients (serves 2) (SW – free!)

– 500g Turkey mince (less than 5% fat)
– 1 tsp ground cumin
– 2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp paprika
– 1 tsp garlic
– Handful of chopped fresh mint
– Fat free natural yogurt to serve


– 2 tomatoes – chopped into small pieces
– 1 red onion
– 1 tsp chilli
– juice of half a lemon
– 1 tsp fresh coriander


– 1/4 of a cucumber (chopped in small pieces)
– handful of mint
– 4-5 tbsps fat free natural yogurt


1. To make the kebabs heat the grill up to medium/high heat

2. Place the turkey mince, cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic and mint in a bowl. Mix together using your hands. Season to taste and mix well.

3. Divide into 12 even sized balls using your hands.

4. Spray a grill tray with low calorie spray (see my blog post about frylight here) or wipe with oil to prevent the kebabs sticking.

5. Thread 4 kebab sticks with 3 balls each. Spray the kebabs with low calorie spray if you have it to hand and place evenly spread out on the grill tray.

6. Place under the grill and cook for around 10-12 minutes, turning the kebabs half way through.

7. To make the salsa, chop the coriander, tomatoes, red onion and chilli and place in a bowl. Mix in with the lemon juice and place in the fridge until ready to serve

8. To make the raita, chop the cucumber and mint and mix in a bowl with the yogurt. Add more mint depending on the taste. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.


We served ours with rice, but you could serve it with cous-cous, quinoa, chips or wedges.

  1. This looks so yummy, I love Turkish food even though I’m too lazy to make my own, haha. But this looks fairly straightforward and the bonus is it’s healthy too πŸ™‚ I remember tag-team meals… it does get better, after a few years πŸ™‚
