Preparation

In large bowl, beat egg; stir in bread crumbs, mint, parsley, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add lamb and feta; mix just until combined. Shape into 16 balls; thread 4 onto each of 4 metal skewers. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until digital thermometer inserted into centre reads 160°F (71°C), about 12 minutes.

Additional information : Tip: To use wooden skewers, thread only 2 meatballs onto each for easier manoeuvring. Or omit skewers and fry balls in nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
