Aromatic Beef Kofti

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ma Field

From Cardamom & Coriander by Simon Morris. Another yummy bit from my new love of Indian food and ZWT6. Little appetizer Indian burger patties which are best eaten grilled outside. Another recipe I read suggested to have the beef ground three times to improve the mouth feel of the patties. Seems like a great idea to me. Ask your butcher.

I thought the meat had a great aromatic flavor and my first time using methi leaves. I did toss in just a bit of lemon juice jsut because I like acid in my kofta and left out the eggs. I made them inside on the non stick griddle. Everyone loved. Thanks for a new Kofta recipe! Made for ZWT 6 by a fellow Looney Spoon :)
