Lady's Thigh Kofte
1 lb ground beef
1big onion, chopped
½-1 bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
½ cup rice, washed and drained
1 cup hot water
1 tsp+ ½ tsp salt to taste
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp black pepper
½ cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten
¾ cup flour
Boil rice in a cup of hot water and add ½ tsp salt. Leave it to cool.
Cook 2/3 of ground beef in skillet till its color turns to brown over medium heat. Then, stir in onion and the remaining salt. Cook till onions get soft over low heat (3-4 minutes). Finally, stir in the parsley and the spices and turn the heat off.
In a large bowl mix the cooked ground meat mixture, rice and the remaining raw ground beef. You can knead with your hands if you like.
Cover the mixture and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Take egg size pieces and make egg shapes and flatten with your hands (the shape in the picture). In a frying pan, sizzle oil. Place flour in a wide plate. In another plate beat the eggs. First dip the koftes in flour, make sure the koftes to be covered evenly with flour. Then dip into egg and fry both sides until they get lightly golden brown.
For a thicker coating; after dipping into egg, again dip into the flour and then fry.
This recipe makes about 10-14 Lady’s Thigh Kofte.
