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.

This recipe made great Kofta. I put all the ingredients, except the meat, into a blender and blended until smooth. Then I kneaded that mixture into the meat. This result in smooth- almost fluffy kofta. I was wonderful! Thanks for posting.
