Kofta, Kebab, Kabob whatever you may call it, these are flavor packed, spicy, and beyond delicious. Serve them with yoghurt tahini sauce and pita bread or alongside rice.
This is the first time that I am posting a recipe with minced meat. Kebabs, kheema masala, pasta sauce with minced meat etc are my favorite, but I rarely make these things because my husband doesn’t like it much and I don’t like to eat alone. But thank God since my son started enjoying those things I started experimenting more with minced meat and I am soo liking it.
These koftas turned out amazing. I made a kofta wrap with yoghurt tahini sauce, hot sauce and some veggies and it was so good. My husband loved it too. He totally approved it. There are many foods and tastes that we often start off disliking, but grow to love over time. Now I have so many other dishes in mind to make with minced meat. Yaay!!
This recipe is inspired from Lathif’s Inspired Channel. You can check out his channel for delicious recipes. Hope you’ll give this recipe a try. 🙂
