    Member #610488's Note:

    Kofte were first made in Imperial Persia from ground lamb and their name probably derives from the old Persian word koofteh. Now common from Spain to India due to the migration of recipes along the old trade routes. This recipe is modified for a western kitchen with the original recipe coming from the Northern Iran/Azerbaijan region.

      Form into 3 large meatballs. Make a hollow in the center of each meatball and add one hard boiled egg, 2 prunes and 1/3 of the nuts. Cover over the hollow so the filling is entirely surrounded by the meat mixture.
