    Delicious! I used half the spices so the recipe would be suitable for our toddler. Both my husband and son enjoyed this recipe. The rosemary with fried vegetables produced a lovely aroma and the lamb koftas were tasty. Next time I’ll experiment with adding more spice and will start cooking the sweet potato 5 mins earlier, as it took longer to cook than the other softer vegetables. I’ll be making this recipe again!
