How to Chop Herbs
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
2. Into a large bowl place sausage meat, onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, ginger and breadcrumbs. Mix well to combine using your hands. With damp hands roll the mixture into 24 even sized balls. Thread 3 meatballs onto each skewer.
3. To make the salad: in a bowl combine the couscous, tomato, cucumber, coriander, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Heat frying pan to a medium heat. Brown meat koftas on all sides, place onto a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
