Köfte are a minced meat dish quite common – with variations- in the Middle East countries, India and the Balcans. This is the «de locos version». Enjoy it!







For the Köfteler

  • 1 Kg. minced meat of veal or lamb
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander
  • grated ginger to taste
  • 1 spoonful of cumin seeds
  • 1 egg
  • salt & pepper to taste.

For the Yogourt Sauce

  • 2 white yoghourts Greek style (unsweetened)
  • 2 spoonfuls of minced mint leaves
  • salt & pepper to taste


Mix well all ingredients. Make the meatballs with a long shape (similar as sausages) and pierce them with a skewer. Cook them on the grill.

Yogourt Sauce

Mix well all the ingredients and serve cold with the warm Köfteler.

This dish matches very well with Hummous and Baba Ghanoush (recipes comming soon)
