These small spicy meat pancakes are a great alternative to normal kofta. The original recipe shapes the meat into balls but I prefer to make small thick patties with mine. If you do not have ground lamb available beef or turkey will work just as well. Serve this dish with a side of fries or rice.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 green chili, sliced
1 pound ground lamb
2 tomatoes, died
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
oil to fry

1.In a large bowl add flour, chili, tomatoes, onion, salt, pepper, allspice, chili powder, garlic powder, parsley, tomato paste and lamb. Combine well with hands.

2.In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add enough oil for frying. Let oil get hot. Make small balls are patties with meat mixture and fry until no longer pink. Drain oil on paper towel. Serve with rice.

Yields: 4 servings
