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.
Ok, before you ignore this recipe listen up! Even if you don’t like coconut or curry or anything in this recipe, make it once and you will shock yourself in how incredibly delicious it is. I have made this dish for the pickiest of clients who say they don’t like any of these ingredients but when it is put together it will shock your palate with flavors you didn’t know existed and you didn’t know you have been missing all these years!
The ingredients in this dish may surprise you, but the sweetness of the beets compliments the spice of the pepper and are such a nice and new blend to the comforting flavor of ground meat!
I know there are a lot of ingredients in this dish that people usually stay away from, so I decided to get them all over with at once. If you buy roquefort cheese from a cheese shop, buy a piece with the smallest amount of blue in it to ease your way in. I promise this salad is crunchy and delicious, try it once and you will find it delicious and be so proud of yourself!
This is a Moroccan inspired dish. It Is deep in flavor but still subtle. The better quality the raisons the better this dish is!
