Title: Lamb & Cayenne Kefta
 Categories: Moroccan, Lamb
      Yield: 6 servings
 
      1 lb Lean ground lamb
      1 md Onion, finely chopped
      2 tb Chopped fresh mint
      1 ts Ground cayenne pepper
      1 ts Ground cloves
      1 ts Ground allspice
      1 ts Ground ginger
      1 ts Ground cardamom
    1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
    1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
    1/2 ts Ground cumin
    1/2 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper
           Pita bread

           Tomatoes
           Lettuce
           Cooked rice (optional)
 
  Keftas, from North Africa, are meatballs prepared with ground lamb or
  beef and a number of herbs and spices. They appear in a variety of
  dishes, such as stews, and also as brochettes hot off the charcoal
  grill. The seasonings range from chili to cinnamon and usually
  include a Moroccan favorite, fresh mint. These keftas are delicious
  served with pita bread, low-fat yogurt, tomatoes and lettuce or with
  cooked rice. Note: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20
  minutes.
  
  Combine all ingredients, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 24
  hours. Shape into 30 1 1/2-inch meatballs and thread them on six
  skewers. (You may slightly flatten them to make sausage shapes or
  leave them as balls.)
  
  Prepare a gas grill or charcoal fire. Grill for 3 minutes on each
  side, or just until no longer pink inside. Alternatively, broil the
  meatballs for 2 minutes on each side.
