Mushroom and Ostrich Koftas

I've been working with the marvellous people at MushroomSA to come up with healthy recipes that revolve around a concept called 'Blendability', basically blending finely chopped mushrooms with ground meat to up the nutrition and taste and decrease the calories. It's a cool concept that works to lessen cost, calorie intake, your carbon footprint as well as up the vitamin and mineral content of your food. 

But, aside from all of that factual stuff, it makes the food taste better and in the case of these koftas, makes them lighter in texture which means they're delicious both hot and cold.

You can make them with either ostrich or lamb mince, but ostrich mince is more freely available in South Africa and very low in fat.
