This is a recipe I would also like to try inshaAllah - first time I've seen oats instead of breadcrumbs mashaAllah.
JazakiAllahu khairan for posting this recipe. Wink

salaam

This recipe turned out very well mashaAllah. I doubled the quantity and cooked 3/4 of the kofta and froze the rest to use as a side-dish inshaAllah. It also took longer to cook because of the extra quantity.
I also added a little salt to the sauce.
partly-cooked before turning the kofta:


cooked:


I served it with white rice and tomato & cucumber salad.

If I had plenty of yoghourt I would have made Tsatsiki (cucumber & yoghourt salad) and maybe even the Turkish yoghourt soup posted by um-zakaria.
A refreshing change to my usual cooking alhamdulilah.
:barakbr01:

By the way - is this a Turkish recipe?

WaSalaamu alaikum,
Aisha

salaam

InshaAllah I will let you know when I have used the ones i froze. Wink
I think they would be fine in any case - I would use them within a month as I find that most things frozen gets a 'freezer' taste after some time which is why I don't freeze many cooked meals.
But this is a fantastic dish mashaAllah tabaarakAllah 8)

I have just eaten this dish after following the instructions to your recipe. I think I may have put in too much lemon, but it was the most delicious and most aromatic dish of koftas I have ever eaten. My family loved it!

Great job sis wow and thanks so much for sharing with us I love kufta with a lot of spices and flavour. My husband like its more plain I always put spices in my own though when I make it.
