Persian Kofte

Not quite sure what the correct term for this recipe should be. Like a massive Kofte with hard boiled eggs and amazing spices – it was really delicious !

You will need:

500g lamb mince (or beef if you prefer)

Tsp cinnamon

Tsp cumin

Tsp turmeric

Tsp black onion seeds

Tsp coriander

2 cloves garlic – chopped

Handful of parsley – chopped

Handful of chives (or spring onions) chopped

100g pecan nuts – chopped

Salt & Pepper

6 eggs (2 beaten for meat mix – remainder to be hard boiled and shelled).

Place all the ingredients in a bowl (apart from the 4 hard boiled eggs – you can use 3 hard boiled eggs if you feel 4 is too much).

Mix well combining everything. Now place half the mix in a loaf tin and top with the hard boiled eggs.

Now cover the eggs with the remaining meat mix. Compacting it tightly around the eggs until it is all sealed.

I then covered and placed in the fridge for 2 hours. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 180 and cook for 45 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Serve with whatever you fancy; we had it with Tabbouleh (recipe right here on my blog).
