Lamb and Liver Koftas

These kofta’s are great for the whole family! They are appropriate from 6 months old, and are high in iron, which is an important nutrient our little ones require. If serving to the whole family, we like to eat these in some wraps with a greek yoghurt/cumin/lemon sauce, some sauerkraut and salad. Delicious!
