Turkish cuisine. If you are tired of the classic, familiar to all cutlets and want something new, it's time to cook "Kefte". This is a traditional Turkish dish, which is prepared from lamb or ground beef with the addition of a huge amount of herbs and spices. Kefte has an exquisite spicy taste with bright notes of the East.
The first thing on a large grater RUB 2 onions to squeeze them through a sieve, remove the onion juice.
In 100 ml of mineral water, pour spices: ground paprika, ground pepper, oregano, cumin and salt.
Now very finely chop the hot pepper, garlic, fresh parsley and fresh mint.
It's time to do the stuffing. Mix ground beef and beef fat. Add the pressed onion, chopped breadcrumbs and egg. Now knead the minced meat, just as the dough is kneaded. After 3 minutes mixing gradually introduced into the mineral mixture of minced meat with spices. And at the very end, add the minced pepper, garlic, parsley and mint.
Moisten your hands in cold water and begin to make blanks. We pinch off small pieces of minced meat and form a kind of flat cutlets, only three times less.
Heat the pan. It is better that it was a frying pan grill. And nothing it does not lubricate, send it to our workpieces. Fry on each side for about three minutes, until browned.
Kefte is very good to serve with vegetables. Fine if it's grilled vegetables. They can be fried in the same grill pan on which we fried the main dish.
All Bon appetit!
