Traditionally kefta / kofta kebabs are made with lamb. This recipe gives a slightly different spin using chicken, bacon and pork sausage meat. The pork sausage meat along with a little tapioca or cornflour binds the mixture into delicious kefta kebabs.
Ingredients
  • 500g Chicken breast meat
  • 150g Pork sausage meat
  • 200g Streaky bacon
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbs Tapioca or cornflour
Instructions
  1. Chop the bacon into thin slices across the grain, then do the same with the chicken. Squeeze the meat from the pork sausages.
  2. Place this all in your food processor along with 2 tsp salt and 2 tbs of tapioca or cornflour.
  3. Process this until quite fine.
  4. Wet your hand and grab a large handful of the mixture, then proceed to mold it onto a 15cm or 6 inch skewer. Continue this process until all of the kefta kebabs are formed.
  5. To make the sesame kefta, roll them in the tapioca or cornflour.
  6. Roll them in the egg, making sure to wet all of the flour, then roll them in the sesame seed to get a good solid coating.
  7. Transfer these to a platter and allow the sesame coating to set for 20 minutes.
  8. Fill your pan with oil to a depth of 25mm or 1 inch and heat this to 170c or 325f.
  9. Carefully lower the plain kefta into the oil, and fry these for 3 minutes per side. Remove these from the pan and drain them on kitchen paper.
  10. Carefully add the sesame coated kefta to the pan and fry these for 3 minutes per side as well. Remove these and drain on kitchen paper.
  11. Transfer the kefta kebabs to platters and serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
