Beef Koftas


Every few weeks we have a 'build a burger night' in our house which is always well received, especially by hubby. On this occasion though I decided to try something a little bit different and did a 'build a kofta night' instead. I served the koftas with pitta breads, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, sour cream, chilli sauce and also some rice. They were fantastic, and although not totally authentic, they will become a regular I think!

Ingredients:
Koftas
500g Minced Beef or Lamb
1 Onion, grated
Thumb of Ginger, grated
6 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
Coriander
1 TBSP Chilli Sauce

Serve with Pitta's, Red Onion, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Sour Cream, Chilli Sauce and if you're really hungry Rice too!!

Method:
Step 1: To make the koftas, put all of the kofta ingredients into a big bowl, along with salt and pepper and mix together, form into balls. Grill for 8-9 minutes, turning once or twice.
Step 2: Toast Pittas and prepare salad

  5. Even just that pattie with ginger inside sounds so good to me. They look wonderful in the pita with all those veggies.
    BTW, I won't leave for my travels till the end of Oct. I'll probably miss all the good weather, but I promise not to complain.

  12. Reminds me of when we have fajitas, I lay all the salad, wraps, salsa etc out in bowls so we can help ourselves and we have a 'picnic' with the blanket on the floor. These look so good so I might have to ditch the fajitas and make these instead!

  16. I LOVE this idea.

    (You can tell the kids plus the hour away grocery store kicked my butt today because my blog comments have been short and boring--but seriously, I think this is a great idea--loads of party possibilities).
