Classic Turkish Kofte

Classic Turkish Kofte


300 grams minced beef

200 Grams of Minced Lamb

2 onions

1 egg

2 tablespoons Finely Chopped breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon cumin,

1 teaspoon of chilly flakes (optional)

1 teaspoon salt,

1 teaspoon Black pepper

Hand full of chopped parsley,

1 teaspoon of Carbonate of Soda


Grate your onion and squeeze the juice out  put this in the bowl add your meat breadcrumbs cumin salt  pepper chilli flakes chopped parsley and your bi carbonate of soda and start kneading

the key to this is the longer you knead the better  depending on the oil content of the meat if the meat is lean sometimes put some olive oil thats why i have split the meat content with beef and lamb as generally lamb is oily

once you have kneaded the Kofta you should end up with a good ball of meat leave this overnight to marinate

the next day you can shape your koftas

to shape i generally make a ball then flatten them to nice flat kofta's like in the picture

light up the barbie so that the Charcoal is white put ion the grill turning occasionally

i also have a basting brush and a cup with olive oil and lemon squeezed into it and occasionally baste the koftas so they don't go dry and you get that barbecue flavour

open your pide insert and Enjoy
