Kofte recipe

We had our first bar be que today thanks to the British sunny day. I really missed Kofte, and wondered if anyone had a simple but guarenteed recipe for making it. I've tried Google, and got this!!!!!!!

1/2 cup prechopped white onion
1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 pound lean ground round
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum tomato (about 2 tomatoes)


and then gave up the will to live.
Please someone give me a recipe which works. In our local village near Foca, I've watched a delightful little old lady throw ingredients into a pan, mix it all together and produce heaven on a plate.
Many thanks in advance. xxxx

Re: Kofte recipe

hah..thats a terrible recipe
get a kilo of lean mince mix in a good spoonful of hot pepper flakes black pepper cumın and salt grate an onion and add it too then mix and mix by hand until the meat is a bit pasty smooth..then break pieces off roll into balls then flatten them and fry or grill

if you want it fancier add some finely chopped parsley and mix well in ditto for garlic and if youve kneaded the meat well theres no need for breadcrumbs or anything else to bind the meat...well thats how i make them and we have them often and theyre ok
afiyet olsun

Re: Kofte recipe

I always keep it simple - I get the butcher to put the meat through the mincer twice to make it really small - salt, black pepper, pul biber, fresh garlic (chopped very small), fresh bread crumbs but not many, and bind it all together with an egg. I shape the burgers in my hands - very small and very flat so they cook quickly and all the way through - if they are a bit wet I dip them in the yellow frying flour before they go in the pan. Always go down well with the outlaws :-)

Re: Kofte recipe

You can buy really good packets of ready mixed kofte spices - just add an egg and some water - simple!
