Your food processor is going to be your best friend when making this recipe because you literally use it to grind everything. The worst possible thing you can do is not use one when making kofta. No one wants big bits of stuff sticking out of one after all. I have previously posted a chicken kofta recipe here on the blog but this recipe is quite different. This is the recipe you will find being made throughout the Gulf countries. When I make these I always serve them with white rice, samboosas and salad.
4 skinless and boneless chicken breast, boiled
1 large potato (or 4 small ones), boiled
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 small white onion
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
1. In the food processor grind the chicken breast then add into a large mixing bowl. Add the onion, parsley and garlic, pulse in the processor then add into the bowl with the chicken. Next, process the potatoes (skin and all) and add to the chicken mixture.
2. In a large saute pan on medium heat add olive oil.
3. In the bowl add cheese, mayonnaise, oats, salt, pepper and eggs. Mix well. Roll the mixture into golf sized balls and place into the pan (I cooked 2 batches). Cover pan and allow to cook for about 3 minutes until bottom is golden then with tongs carefully flip and allow over side to cook. Place koftas on a paper towel lined dish and serve.
