    Sassy Syrah's Note:

    I have been making these for a while now. They are very simple to pull together and I can imagine if you made them smaller they would be nice appetizers on toothpicks. Serve with a yoghurty, garlicy, herby dipping sauce like #93230

      Sooooo disappointed! I was really looking forward to these koftas and enjoyed preparing them and adding my own couple of twists (more cumin, a quarter tsp of cinnamon, 2 sauted shallots)......... And they came out tasting?...... Bland, bland, bland. Even pitta breads roasted tomatoes and a large dollop of tzaitzi couldn't help....... Maybe I'll add some chilli flakes and take these down a more Moroccan route?

      These were so flavorful and the instructions are very clear & accurate. I like that all the fat from the meat drips down into the pan under the rack. I used ground beef sirloin for my mince. I highly recommend serving the with the suggested yogurt dip, as these do call out for a sauce.
