Kofta Blend No.17 - Kofta is associated with several regions, from India to Greece, what they have in common is they use a mince meat combined with onions and spices. They can me made with a wide range of meats and vegetables and sometimes fish, which is more typical in Indian versions. The Kofta can be shaped either as a ball, pattie or in a sausage shape and formed from minced ingredients. This mince is where it gets its name as Kofta translated means to pound or to grind.

Spice Master Tips
Refrigerate – You can make these ahead of time and place them in the fridge which will do two things, it will deepen the flavour and also allow your mixture to firm up which helps when cooking on the BBQ.
Turning - Don't be tempted to turn them often, allow them to cook for at least 5 minutes to allow the cooking process to firm them up.
Bread – Warming the bread may seem trivial but it does increase the enjoyment, the aroma and softness enhances the whole experience.
