Kofta and Homemade flatbread
My wife and I love various ethnic foods, so last night I decided to do some Kofta Sandwiches on homemade flatbread. This was the first time I have made any kind of bread. I wanted something kinda like a gordita bread, so I found a recipe on King Arthur Flour's website. They turned out just like I wanted. I did not cook them on the egg, although I may try it sometime.
Next on to the Kofta. For those who don't know, Kofta is a Middle Eastern dish made with ground lamb, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, cayenne, garlic, allspice, ground coriander, and parsley. I'm sure there are other versions, but this is the best I've found. Kofta can either be prepared as meatballs, or as kebabs. I chose to do the kebabs on the egg, then cut them up for sandwiches on the flatbread. Topped them with some lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and tatziki sauce. Everything came out delicious. and the best part was the wife loved them.
