Beef Koftas

Difficulty 3

Search the Internet and you will soon see that the Kofta has many different guises. This flavorsome meal varies across the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. Each variation is equally tasty and they are a great meal to add to your repertoire!

This Middle Eastern inspired dish packs a punch in the flavor department and makes a filling and delicious meal all year round.

We found this to be an incredibly versatile dish it can be served in Flat breads, with rice or couscous. 


Dice the onion into the smallest pieces you can manage. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onions cooking until soft to touch.

In a bowl mix the ground beef with the cinnamon, chilli flakes, garlic powder, hot paprika, cumin, salt and pepper.

Add the cooked onions to the meat and spices, mix thoroughly.

Once the mixture is well combined it’s time to shape the kofta into finger shaped patties. This quantity of ground beef should make 8 koftas.

Cook the patties in a heavy skillet, until cooked through and evenly browned. Avoid turning to much as they can crumble.

Serve with salad and rice or in a flatbread.
