For today’s lunch, I decided to make kofta because the only thing I had in the freezer was a packet of minced beef. When I got back home from work, I quickly mixed the minced beef with cumin powder, coriander powder, ginger paste, garlic paste, a tiny bit of black pepper, salt and a bit of paprika powder. I then went outside to The Hubby’s potted plant garden and snipped off some mint. I chopped the mint and mixed them into the beef mixture. After which, I added a little bit of olive oil and shaped them into elongated patties. My weakness is inconsistency. I cannot and am not good at creating perfect shapes of the same size. That’s why I hate baking cookies during Hari Raya. I like to think of myself as a more bohemian rustic sort of person. I did grow up in the Grunge era. :p So anyway, after browning the patties in olive oil, I finished the cooking process in the oven and served the koftas with a big dollop of Greek yoghurt and bread.
