- 1/2 kg minced meat - لحم مفروم
- 1 medium onion (grated) - بصلة
- 10 leaves mint (fresh) - نعناع
- 1/2 bunch parsley (finely chopped) - بقدونس
- 2 eggs - بيض
- 1 cup breadcrumbs - بقسماط
- salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
- 1/2 cup sunflower oil (to bake: only 2 tablespoons for brushing) - زيت عباد الشمس
Step by step
- Mix the meat with the grated onion, finely chopped mint and parsley, salt and pepper.
- Divide the meat into 4 quarters and make 2 large pieces of kofta out of every quarter. (you may choose to make them smaller.)
- Beat the eggs in a bowl, and place the bread crumbs in another plate.
- Dip the kofta in the egg, then cover with bread crumbs and fry on both sides until golden and cooked through.
- To bake: brush your oven tray with oil, then place your kofta on the tray and brush with oil before baking in a 180 degrees pre-heated oven for around 20- 30 minutes. Turn them on the other side half-way through.
- You may freeze the kofta in a suitable box/ container before frying/ baking.
