Deliciously spicy, and very aromatic. These are far more interesting than regular old meatballs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the ground meat in a larger bowl, and add ginger, garlic, cayenne peppers, onion, egg, tumeric, garam masala, cilantro, mint, potato, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix well (you'll have to use your hands for this one).
  3. Form golf ball sized balls with the meat mixture, and set aside.
  4. Allow to rest 30 minutes.
  5. Heat oven to 375º.
  6. Place the kofta on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake 25 minutes or until cooked through, and slightly browned.
  7. Serve hot, with nan bread, cucumber-yogurt sauce and a fresh tomato and mint salad.

Lovely! I made this but cooked them in the fry pan with a little spray oil. Delish! Will be making again.
