These appetising, walnut-shaped morsels are always part of the Turkish mezze. They are best served hot, but are also quite good at room temperature and also ideal for a picnic. In Turkey minced Lamb is used, but Beef or a mixture of both will do.


Ingredients Needed For Köfte
* 2 medium-size slices of crustless stale bread, soaked briefly in water
* 500 g (1 lb) minced Lamb or Beef
* 1 medium-size Onion, grated thickly
* 2 tablespoons fresh chopped mint, or 1 tablespoon dried mint
* 1 tablespoon fresh chopped Parsley
* 1 clove of garlic, crushed
* 1 egg - salt and black pepper

Directions To Prepare Köfte
Squeeze out excess water from the soaked bread, leaving it quite dry. Combine all the ingredients for the Köfte in a bowl and mix well. Make walnut-shaped balls and keep them covered until they are to be eaten. Then roll them lightly in flour and fry in hot oil for 2-3 minutes until golden all over. They can be shallow -or deep- fried.
