Lamb and Liver Koftas with flatbread

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 yoghurt flatbreads with a greek yoghurt/cumin/lemon sauce, some sauerkraut and salad. Delicious!

I also served mine with a quick zucchini salad as I had NO veg in the fridge, turned out really nice. Not really traditional but was delicious. For this you use a mandolin and peel a whole zucchini, add a couple TBSP crumbled feta and make a quick dressing:
2 TBSP olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 tsp honey (omit under 12 months)

Yoghurt Flatbreads

Course 3 meals a day, Baby Led Weaning, BLW, Family Meals, lunchbox, Main Course
Servings 6 flatbreads


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • BBQ or Fry Pan



  • Combine equal parts yoghurt and flour, we used:
  • 400g wholemeal spelt flour (works well with plain or self-raising flour also)
  • 400g natural yoghurt


  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • Stir all ingredients with your hands, gather into a ball and pop on a floured surface
  • Knead a few times – it’s not bread so don’t need to go overboard, just until it’s combined
  • Let it rest for atleast 20 mins in a floured bowl with a plate or cloth on top
  • Seperate into 6 equal portions, then on a floured surface roll each one out until about 0.5cm thick
  • Cook on the bbq or a fry pan on low heat, no need to add oils, remove when soft and coloured!


We served ours with lamb Koftas, greek yoghurt mixed with a squeeze of lemon juice, lemon zest, cucumber, cumin and mint… and a tomato salsa (just tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper!)
AGE APPROPRIATE: 12 months +
