Baking Tray
Large Bowl
Rolling Pin
Small Bowl


Roast the Wedges

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. 

Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel) and pop onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, then sprinkle over half the Thai style spice blend (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. 

Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

When the oven is hot, roast on the middle shelf until golden, 30-40 mins. Turn halfway through.

Make the Koftas

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining Thai style spice blend, breadcrumbs and the salt and water for the breadcrumbs (see pantry for both amounts), then add the beef mince. 

Season with pepper and mix together with your hands. Shape into mini sausage shapes, 4 per person. Flatten to make koftas. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

Time to Bake

When the wedges are halfway through cooking, pop the koftas onto a large baking tray. Bake on the top shelf until browned on the outside and cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The koftas are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

While everything cooks, zest and halve the lime (see ingredients for amount).

Smacked Cucumber Time

Next, trim the cucumber (see ingredients for amount), then pop it onto a board and use a rolling pin to gently smack it a few times until split. Cut into roughly 2cm chunks.

In a large bowl, add a good squeeze of lime juice, the sambal paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and soy sauce. Season and add a generous pinch of sugar, then mix to combine. Add the cucumber to the bowl. Toss to combine. Set aside. TIP: Keep the other half of the cucumber for another recipe.

Finishing Touches

In another small bowl, combine the lime zest and the mayo (see pantry for amount).

When the koftas are ready, drizzle over the sweet chilli sauce while they are still on the baking tray and toss until evenly glazed. 

Serve Up

Once cooked, share the sweet chilli beef koftas between your plates.

Serve the spicy potato wedges and smacked cucumber on the side, along with the zesty mayo for dipping.

Cut any remaining lime into wedges and serve on the side for squeezing over.
