Instructions

Make the Chips
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chips onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season well with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Shape the Koftas
2
  • Meanwhile, zest and quarter the lemon.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Crumble the Greek style cheese into a large bowl.
  • Add breadcrumbs, pork mince and half the garlic. Season with pepper and mix together by hand.
  • Form into small sausage shapes, 4 per person. Flatten to make koftas. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

TIP: Make sure the cheese is well incorporated to avoid lumps in your koftas.

Assemble the Salad
3
  • Trim the root tip and green stalks of the fennel. Chop widthways into small pieces.
  • Halve the tomatoes.
  • Pick mint leaves from stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks).
  • Mix 1 tbsp oil and the juice of half a lemon (double both for 4p) in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper and 1 tsp sugar (double for 4p). Toss the tomato, fennel and half the mint in the dressing. 
  • Drain the grilling cheese and cut into 2cm cubes. Add to a bowl of cold water.
Make the Fillings
4
  • Mix the yoghurt in a small bowl with the remaining mint, lemon zest and remaining garlic (add less if you don't love raw garlic). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Remove the cheese cubes from the water and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Once hot, fry the grilling cheese until golden, shifting frequently, 4-5 mins. Once cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Cook the Koftas
5
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with another drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the pork koftas and fry until browned all over and cooked through, turning occasionally, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Koftas are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • When the koftas are almost cooked, pop the naan into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
Finish and Serve
6
  • To serve, divide your warm naans between plates. 
  • Pile on the chips, grilling cheese, tomato salad and koftas.
  • Top with a dollop of mint yoghurt.
  • Serve any remaining chips and lemon wedges alongside.
