Kofta recipe - super easy

Recommended Posts

These turn out better over an actual fire....plus dont be shy to add some more spice:

 

cayenne, clove powder, mace powder, cardamom powder etc

 

Im also surprised the flimsy bamboo slivers can take the weight...I would imagine nice 

broad metal skewers would be nice...

Problem is they have a tendency to disintegrate on the BBQ.

some sort of binding agent....perhaps an egg mashed into the mix....might help

kofta using pork?...an interesting concept as it's a middle eastern/persian dish and pork is haram...I've tried making kofta using the frozen ground beef from makro but it has too much fat...and yeah you can use an egg as a binder, also some bread crumbs sorta like meatloaf with some spices and chiles added as in the OP's recipe...cooked the same way as meatloaf without the skewers...

from the thigh.

a 400gm pack of pork mince.

Why unecessarily add to the World's plastic pollution problem? Why not buy it loose?

 

Why use msg?

Only place I have found where I can get lamb is online delivery and it's so expensive it's stupid.

Hi SteveK, obviously I don't know where you are located. We are a little out from Pattaya, we have minced lamb available in Big C Extra, I think that I have also seen it in Macro (but not 100% sure). Yes I am sure that it is more expensive than pork because it is imported from Australia, however, it might be cheaper than the offerings on-line.

those weren't the balls, they were the other part. 😛 

 

ETA: OP- have seen lamb for sale at some macros and a few foodlands. you could get the chops and grind it yourself if you have a meat grinder.

Had rack of lamb at sofitel in hua hin. the "chef" destroyed it. was as chewy as jerky.

swedish meat balls use a mixture of ground beef and pork and very tasty if a bit rich...

 

ground meats are versatile and can be used for almost anything...thais don't eat much goat although it's available at the local market occasionally, they're big on the pork, chicken and fish like most 3rd world places, we get ours outta the klong and a BiL has a harpoon and net arrangement...the local beef ain't worth mentioning...even with grinding...needa go to the frozen meat section at makro for the AUS and NZ stuff...
