For the Koftas;

  • 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 15g fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 minced clove garlic
  • A large handful of spinach
  • 2 tbsp gram (or plain flour)
  • 5 tbsp Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats
  • Olive oil to fry

For the Pink Pickled Onions;

  • ½ a small red onion, finely sliced
  • Juice of half a lemon

For the Flat Breads;

  • 250g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 and ½ tsp baking powder
  • 250g plain yogurt
  • 3 tbsp Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp melted butter

For the Tahini Sauce;

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the chickpeas, coriander, spinach, cumin seeds, turmeric, paprika and minced garlic in a food processor and process until the mixture comes together.
  • Tip into a bowl and add the gram (or plain flour), Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats and season to taste with salt and pepper. Work this into the mixture using your hands.
  • Use two spoons to shape the mixture into 8-10 Koftas, and place to one side.
  • Put the sliced red onion in a small bowl, cover with hot water and leave aside.
  • After 10 minutes, drain and squeeze out the excess water, place the onion in a small bowl and season with salt. Then, stir in the juice of half a lemon and leave to one side.
  • Mix together the tahini and lemon juice.
  • Following this, dilute the mixture with enough water to achieve a pourable consistency and season generously with salt and pepper.

    To Make the Flat Breads;
  • Tip the flour into a mixing bowl and whisk in the baking powder, 2 tbsp Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats and a pinch of salt.
  • Add the yogurt to the mix and stir with the handle of a wooden spoon until the mixture starts to come together.
  • Use your hands to form the dough and knead until soft and springy (about 5 mins), adding in a little more flour if it starts to feel too sticky.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal sized pieces.
  • Generously flour a clean work surface and rolling pin and roll the dough into the desired shape for your flat breads.
  • Sprinkle over the remaining Flahavan’s Organic Jumbo Oats and lightly press them into the dough using the rolling pin.
  • Heat a large frying pan or griddle pan over a medium heat and cook the flat breads for a couple of minutes on each side until golden brown and puffed.
  • Brush them with a little of the melted butter and keep warm by covering them with a clean tea towel.
  • Heat 3 tbsp of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the koftas and cook for a couple of minutes on each side until browned and crisped on all sides.

    To Serve;
  • Place the koftas onto your flat breads, along with a handful of the pink pickles and some salad. Drizzle with the tahini sauce, and enjoy!
