Lamb koftas with tomato and onion salad recipe • 1 small onion, finely grated • 1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped • 10g (½oz) fresh root ginger, peeled and grated Thai Fish Cakes with Sesame and Lime Dipping Sauce To make the fishcakes you first of all need to put the lemon grass, garlic, ginger, coriander leaves, kaffir lime leaves, lime zest, chilli and red pepper into a food processor, then turn the motor on and blend everything fairly finely. After that add the chunks of fish, process again briefly until the fish is blended in, then finally pour in the coconut powder (click here for stockist information) through the feeder tube. Switch on the motor again but be careful at this stage not to overprocess – all you need to do is briefly blend it all for 2-3 seconds. Then tip the mixture into a bowl, add some seasoning and shape the fishcakes into 24 fairly small, thin, flattish, round shapes about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. If you like you can make them ahead to this stage, but spread them out in a single layer, cover with clingfilm and keep them in the refrigerator till needed. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce.
