What is this food called?

We had what looked like an oval shaped scotch egg in Turkey but without the egg and pork. The waiter squirted lemon over it and it was very hot and spicy. Does anyone know the name and if you can buy them in England?

Thanks
Carol

Re: What is this food called?

Could be Bulgur kofte, (usually stuffed with spicy minced meat)? I don't live in the Uk, so can't comment on availability there.

išli k÷fte
they are a specialty of Hatay and the areas down there..as well as syria and other arab countries.
The casing is made from a paste of bulgur and minced meat which is pounded together to make it smooth..this is formed into a cigar shape either by hand or nowadays by a machine like a sausage maker...then the cases are filled with a mix of minced meat onions spices and chopped nuts....and then its fried or can be baked in the oven.
i spend hours helping to make them when we are in Antakya..its time consuming but they are one of my favourites.

Re: What is this food called?

Hi,

It sounds like "icli kofte" (pronounced ichli kofteh) and, as far as I know you can't buy them in England. they are made from minced lamb and spices

Re: What is this food called?

ive eaten them in a Lebanese Restaurant in london..and im sure if theres Middle East deli near where you live you will be able to get them...
ive made an İraqi version from rice...short grain...pounded to a paste with some mince..and then rolled into a ball in your hand..hollowed out and filled with the same sort of mix..and the deep fried..also very good.
İš means inside..iš-li with stuffing

Re: What is this food called?

Link to YouTube shows you how (neat method to make the shells demonstrated...)with recipe. Turkish but subtitled ingredients. Bulgar, meat and spices all available in UK, so get in that kitchen and impress!

Re: What is this food called?

Lebanese restaurants serve these and I think are called Kibe pronounced 'Kibayh' I have seen them in middle eastern food stores in the freezers in London.
