Kofta meat kebabs

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.

Sliders are an American way of saying mini burgers. You can double these and make them regular sized burgers, they are just so much cuter this way! If you want to serve these with bread, I love using mini whole wheat pitas, but you can use whatever you wish. In the last minute or two of the burgers grilling, throw the bread on the grill too!
