Kofta Kebab Recipe

Kofta Kebab Recipe

- 1 lb ground lamb (or meat of choice) - ¼ cup yellow onion, grated 2-  teaspoon minced Garlic - ¼ teaspoon Ground pepper - ½ teaspoon Salt - ½ teaspoon Paprika - ½ teaspoon Cumin - ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon - ⅛ teaspoon Nutmeg - 5 Mint Leaves, minced - 2 tablespoon packed Parsley, minced

Step 1: In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and spices. Use your hands or a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients until they are well combined. (If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 2 hours before adding the meat to them.)

Step 2: After the mixture is combined, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for at least a half hour but up to 24 hours. The longer the mixture sits, the more flavorful it will be.

Step 3: Once the meat mixture is done resting, divide it into eighths. Wrap each portion around a skewer, forming the meat so that it is more long than wide.

Step 4: Add the meat skewers to the grill and cook, turning occasionally until the outside is brown and a meat thermometer reads an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit (about 15 minutes).

Step 5: Remove the kofta from the grill and serve with pita bread, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, hummus, or anything else that sounds good! Enjoy!
