These are really easy to make,
Simple to grill or bake,
Combined finely diced onion with beef too,
Then pulse it in food processor as had not read the recipe to do onions first TRUE! DOH!
Pulsed away, perfect consistancy for me!
AFter making footballs, molding them on the bamboo sticks is the key!
Don't have the be gentle, I "pressed" and boxed each side,
I can say I made these with pride!
THANKS!
Used sour dough bread as had on hand today!
These are very versatile and can tailor them your own way!

We love koftas, and the ones we eat are usually lamb, so this was a nice change. I must confess to putting in more spice than the recipe, as my DH loves them really hot, and I mean really really hot. I made some small round patties, and some on bamboo skewers, and served them with salad. we liked them and would make them again. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.

These were okay. I did have problems getting the meat mix to hold together on the skewers. I ground up the meat in the processor with the onions and it got very fine and loose. Next time I might not grind it as fine, and probably add a bit more of the spices since you couldn't really taste them in the final product. We had these served with Big Daddy's Lemon Pepper Orzo and mixed all together these were very good. Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.
