Equipment

  • Frying Pan
  • Skewers - optional

Ingredients

  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 500 grams beef mince
  • handful fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds

Instructions

  • Grate the onion and crush the garlic and place into a large bowl
  • Add the beef mince and remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.
  • Scoop up large golf ball size scoops of the mixture. Shape the mixture around your skewers (or into logs) and place onto a plate. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.
  • Place a tablespoon of olive oil (or ghee) into a large frying pan and heat over a medium/high heat.
  • Carefully add the koftas (you may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your pan) and cook for 2 -3 minutes each side or until beginning to brown. Carefully turn and repeat until the koftas are brown all over and cooked through.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Slice the brown onion in half and add it along with the garlic cloves to your Thermomix bowl. Mix for 6 seconds, speed 6 to grate.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix for 10 seconds, speed 5 to combine.
  • Scrape down the base and sides of the Thermomix bowl and mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 5.
  • Remove the bowl from your Thermomix and scoop up large golf ball size scoops of the mixture. Shape the mixture around your skewers (or into logs) and place onto a plate. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.
  • Place a tablespoon of olive oil (or ghee) into a large frying pan and heat over a medium/high heat.
  • Carefully add the koftas (you may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your pan) and cook for 2 -3 minutes each side or until beginning to brown. Carefully turn and repeat until the koftas are brown all over and cooked through.

Notes

  • Both the cooked and uncooked kofta is freezer friendly.
  • I cooked these in a frying pan with a little ghee, however you can also bake them or cook on a BBQ/Grill.
  • If you prefer to make these without skewers that is fine.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled, however please ensure you do not go over the maximum fill line if making in a Thermomix.
