Kofta Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This gets 4 stars only after I changed it quite a bit. I didn't even try the recipe as printed because it looks so bland.I added 3 TB dry chili flakes. 2TB each minced ginger & garlic. 1 small diced red onion. 1 whole egg instead of just the yolk, and a bunch of chopped fresh cilantro. I think you would normally do parsley instead of cilantro but I just love cilantro.

My dear, I have never been to the Middle East, but your kofta recipe certainly transported me there! A delicious blend of spices and flavors and a simple method of cooking. I did add some paprika and fresh cilantro, and the flavors were exotic. I served it with homemade hummus, pocket bread and the Eggplant Curry, and couscous from the website, and WOW! A very picky eater with our dinner guests had thirds! And lots of compliments. Thanks for a superb addition to my recipe collection.

I was hoping for something unique with this, but was disappointed with the results. Mine turned out like a dry, hotdog shaped meatloaf. It didn't have the Mediteranian flavor I was looking for. I stuck with the original recipe, except to add paprika, as one reviewer suggested. I also broiled it in the oven rather than cooking it on the grill.

Traditionally Kofta is made with finely chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley, salt, pepper, and paprika to taste. My husband makes really good Kofta and that is what he normally puts.
