One of the most popular Turkish meat dishes is prepared on a skewer and has a history that goes back deep into antiquity. Initially, kebab was prepared in cauldrons or forms for meat without sauce or any liquid on an open fire. There is a legend about the origin of meat dishes cooked on skewers or wooden skewers, associated with the name of the Persian ruler Darius, who went to war, with the words: “This is what will happen to our enemies,” he forcefully stuck a sharpened wooden rod into the cauldron with meat. The recipe offered to you today is one of the variations of a kebab made at home from available products.
“Avji koftesi” translates as “Hunting meatballs” – a dish from the menu of the Ottoman court, served at a reception at the Sultan in honor of the palace military leaders. Initially, it was prepared from chopped meat in a cauldron on an open fire, served in shallow copper plates. With the increasing influence of European cuisine, the dish received a European addition in the form of additional ingredients and cooking methods. Nowadays, this dish is in the diet of all Turkish houses. Each hostess prepares it in her own way, but the main ingredients invariably remain-small meatballs, potatoes, onions and tomatoes.
