Lamb Koftas

Posted on: June 10, 2011

Koftas are a kind of meatball that originated from the Middle East and they are usually made up of minced lamb or beef, with spices added as well.

Here are the ingredients used in the kofta: toasted cumin, smoked paprika, coriander, turmeric, garlic and onion

And of course the main ingredient is the mince lamb, looking like a human brain here

Mix everything well together, mashing it together with fists

Shape them into meatballs. Traditionally koftas are more oval shaped and flatter, meant to be skewered and grilled over charcoal

Instead of a charcoal grill, I simply pan fried them – delicious!

wow now middle east cuisine. you are v knowledgeable in food! Did you add abit of oil when pan frying them? Noticed there is alot of liquid on the pan. Is it from the lamb?

Haha I do like to try a wide range of cuisines when the fancy strikes me. I guess I’m slowly moving out of my Italian cooking phase. And I did put a fair amount of oil in the pan but some of it is from the lamb as well which is kinda oily.
