What's this?

Kofta, savory meat kebabs, are known as comfort food in much of the world. Serve with warmed pita bread and a tomato salad with sweet onions or a garlicky yogurt sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound Ground Lamb or Ground Beef, chilled

  • 67/100 Cup onion, minced

  • 2 Clove garlic, minced

  • 3 Tablespoon minced cilantro leaves

  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Mint, minced

  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 Teaspoon paprika

  • 1 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • As Needed Pita Bread

Steps

  • 1

    In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except the pita bread. Form into meatballs, each about 2 inches in diameter. Skewer each meatball on a bamboo skewer, then wet your hands with cold water and mold the meat into a cigar shape about as large as a man's thumb. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or even overnight.
