DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all the ingredients, except the yogurt and pita, in a large bowl; refrigerate at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.
  • To grill: Preheat the grill to medium-high; clean and oil the grates. Working close to the grill, form about 3 tablespoons of the mixture into a ball. While turning the skewer (this helps the mixture stick), skewer the ball, flattening it to a 3-inch-long oval tapered at the ends. Pinch well on the ends to attach the kebabs to the skewer. Add more balls to the skewer, if you like, and place the skewers on the grill as you go. Cook until they are browned and still have a slight give in the center, turning twice, 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • To bake: Preheat the oven to 375° and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • Place the kofta on skewers as described above. Or, form into balls of the same shape, place on the prepared pan and bake until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes. If you like, finish under the broiler until golden, about 3 minutes.
  • To serve: Serve the kofta right away with yogurt for dipping and pita bread.
