Low-Fat, Slimming Friendly Kebabs, Delivered By Lo-Dough

We've designed these kebabs with slimmers AND gym-goers in mind. Turkey breast is lean, low-fat and super-high in protein and makes the perfect kebab for both groups of dieters. Fear not - they are still packed full of flavour and careful cooking of the turkey means these won't dry out, as is often the concern with white turkey meat. The flavour comes from a mix of herbs and spices - a liberal sprinkling of both - as well as a low-fat mint yoghurt raita. 

Look at the nutritional info: 221 Calories, 10g of carbs, 3g of fat, 35g of protein and 10.3 grams of fibre - the numbers are pretty mind-blowing, right? 

The easiest way to make the koftas is to quickly griddle them and then transfer them in a low to medium oven to finish cooking whilst retain some moisture. If you are struggling for free hands or a griddle pan, just start them in a high oven for five mins and then lower the temperature to complete the cooking.
