Potatoes Kofta

I was thinking of a different recipe that would sweep my husband off his feet. Therefore, I came up with this. Boy was he ever happy when he saw this on the table, but what was even better was all the ooh’s and ahh’s I got. We could not stop gobbling these little things down and how incredibly filling they are, you do not need anything else on the table. If you really want to play this recipe up make an assortment of side dips. We all love meat and potatoes so this recipe right here is a sure winner.

1 pound ground beef
2 extra large potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 onion, finely diced
4 garlic cloves, diced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon kholengan, ground
1/2 tablespoon salt
5 eggs, beaten
2-1/2 cups breadcrumbs
Sunflower oil for frying

1. In a large mixing bowl, add potatoes, beef, onion, garlic, pepper, cumin, coriander, Kholengan, salt, 1 egg and 1/2 cup breadcrumbs. Mix well with hands. Add 4 eggs into a bowl and 2 cups of breadcrumbs into another bowl.

2. In a large sauté pan on low-medium heat add sunflower oil, just enough to fry, oil should reach almost half way to kofta when frying. Make sure oil does not start to get to hot. Quickly make mixture into egg size shapes, and then form into a disk shape by gently pressing. Place each kofta into egg mix then roll in breadcrumbs. Add kofta into oil and fry on each side until golden. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Yields: 40

I am sorry I just saw this sisters but this spice is something I have only saw in Asia and Saudi. Its from the ginger family but has a licorice taste I would just leave it out if you do not have it, it will be fine inshAllah.
