Hunting-Style Meatballs Recipe
"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.
