  • 1 lb ground lamb or beef turkey can also be used, I used lamb
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup grated onion or finely minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Tahini sauce for topping optional


  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • <span></span>In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients (except the tahini sauce) with your hands or a wooden spoon, until well blended. Form the mixture into 24 small ball; I like to use an ice-cream scoop to get the exact sizes. Place kofta balls 1 inch apart on an un-greased sheet pan and press to flatten; squeeze as many as you can on the pan because they will shrink as they bake.

    Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the center is done. Place under the broiler for 2 minutes or until lightly charred. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and tahini sauce, in pitas or as a salad. Enjoy!
