Woke up to a cloudy cold weather….a spicy soup after work and school will be heart warming♡♥.
Of course soup alone won’t be enough…I made Kofta (كفته )….this is an arabic dish…consists of lamb meat finely chopped and mixed with onions.parsley…and spices…I usually buy it ready made from the butcher.
But I do add a bit if ketchup. mustard and oatmeal or breadcrumbs as available.
You spread the meat in a pan..not too thick nor too thin.
Leave it on the oven till all water is dry.
You can do Kofta in many ways..either keep it simple. add olive oil on top and roast it in the oven.
Or add tomato and potato slices..put it the oven till potatoes are tender..then roast it.
Another way is to add tahini yoghurt mixture(طحينيه ) on top and in the oven till it thickens.
It’s usually eaten with pitta bread or plain rice.
As for the soup…you’ll need one small onion.4-5 carrots. 1 cube chicken stock.butter. one big spoon oatmeal.cream or milk and 4 cups water.
Sautee the onions and carrots till tender.add the chicken stock cube.oatmeal and water.salt.pepper and a bit of cinnamon.
Let it simmer for 45 minutes on low heat till carrots are soft.
Mix all with a mixer or blender..add the cream..then let it boil for another 10-15 minutes…..and serve hot with toasted croutons if you like
