Meatballs (Daring Cooks Challenge June 2013)

lamb kofta

I’m not a meat ball eater, but was inspired by my very old waitrose free ‘Seasons’ cooking magazine (back in the days when they didn’t have those weekend newspapers)  I made lamb kofta. My meat balls were simply minced meat with fried onion, garlic, ras el hanout & a drop of rose water, squidged together to form meaty spheres.  I baked these in the oven –  gallons of fat oozed out of them whilst they baked. They made washing the pan a bit of a nightmare, the kitchen stank of lamb fat all night. However, they were delicious, especially served with homemade flat breads and baba ganoush.

The June Daring Cooks’ challenge sure kept us rolling – meatballs, that is! Shelley from C Mom Cook and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to try meatballs from around the world and to create our own meatball meal celebrating a culture or cuisine of our own choice.

  1. Oh, yes – washing the pan is often the hardest part, but your lamb kofta look great, and like a wonderful addition to the challenge, especially from a non-meatball fan! Thanks so much for cooking with us!

  2. These meatballs were delectable. The rose water, ras el hanout and the flatbreads combining to evoke the flavours of Morrocco. It was a privilege to sample them. By the way, you’ll be learning your own Crafts of Mummyhood soon enough!
