I used a blend of black and regular lentils (cooking them for the same amount of time) It really helps to place the mixture in the fridge for a bit to hold the burger together more but if you want to eat it right away, just be very cautious when turning it over, best with a spatula and spoon together. If you are eating the burger with cheese, place the cheese on top immediately after flipping it over to the second side.
This is an amazingly quick recipe IF you have really good chicken stock or leftover chicken soup. It’s important to have a really good base to have a flavorful soup!
This dish is so quick but has a depth of flavor. Even people who don’t typically like ‘curry’ flavors will like this because, the cauliflower calms the flavors and the honey gives it a sweet depth.
This is the quickest way to make caramelized onions and it is just so unique and flavorful, it tastes like it took hours to make. If you want to make this even quicker, saute the chicken first in the saute pan (instead of a separate grill pan) and then add a few tablespoons of water and use a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan (scraping up all the brown bits) then add the onions and proceed with regular recipe! (it will taste almost the same but you just won’t get those beautiful grill marks.
Koftas are meatballs with spices and onions that are most popular in Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. It is important to buy a fattier meat (whether it is lamb or beef) so they don’t get dried out in the oven. They will create a lot of liquid which is delicious and can be serve on top of rice, or dipped into with bread. I like to serve these with grilled bread and tachina but you can eat them on their own, with pasta, last minute into a tomato based soup, or with tomato sauce.
