Kofta, Kefteh, Kefta

I was craving some kabob type of food but wanted something different from the normal. Since I had a few pounds of ground beef I decided to go for some meatball type of a dish. I found this recipe for kofta…kefta or kefteh. I guess it is pronounced differently in the different regions.

I found this recipe to be pretty easy to prepare and execute. Well, at the end of it…this is really a hamburger shaped like a hotdog.

Ingredients:

• 1 pound Ground Beef or Lamb Meat
• 1 egg yolk
• 2 Medium size Onions (chopped)
• 3 tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
• 8 Green Chilies (chopped)
• ½ tsp of Oregano
• 1 tsp black pepper powder
• Salt to taste
• Bamboo sticks (soaked in water)

Method

1. Add all the ingredients together and mix well.
2. Give a round shape shapes (like balls), refrigerate for 3 hours.
3. Take out the mixture and put the meat on a bamboo stick.
4. Press it into the stick and shape it like a hotdog but smaller. Use some oil on your hands to prevent it from sticking to your hands.
5. Grill / bake or shallow fry them until done…since it’s ground…you want the internal temperature to reach at least 160 degrees.

Time to eat!

Serve immediately. Enjoy with tomato sauce or a yogurt sauce.

Tips :

If you like spicy food you may increase the amount of red chili powder. You also don’t have to use skewers. They hold a shape really well from the egg.
