  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4, and the grill to high.
  2. To make the koftas, combine all the ingredients except the yogurt and lemon zest and season well. Shape the mixture into 8 equal portions. Run 8 wooden skewers under cold water (to prevent them burning) then shape each portion of mince around a skewer. Grill the koftas for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, split the pitta breads in half, put on a baking tray and mist with cooking spray. Bake for 5 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  4. While the koftas are grilling and the pittas are baking and cooling, put the tomatoes, cucumber, onion and parsley in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and sumac and season well. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until well combined.
  5. Break the cooled pitta breads into rough pieces and mix into the salad.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt and lemon zest and season well. Serve the koftas with the fattoush and a dollop of the lemon yogurt mixture on the side.
