  1. In a bowl, combine the lamb mince, harissa paste, mixed herbs and seasoning. Mix well, and divide into 8-12 pieces. Shape into koftas with your hands, and set aside. 
  2. Bring a pan to a medium high heat, and drizzle generously with oil. Cook the koftas for 4-6 minutes, or until dark golden brown and cooked through.
  3. To build, lay the pitas on plates. Top with the rocket, then with 2-3 koftas per pita. Scatter over the red onion and cherry tomatoes, then drizzle with yoghurt. Finish with fresh mint and seasoning.
