Koftas are a type of meatball found throughout the middle east.
In the simplest form, koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat usually beef or lamb mixed with spices and/or onions.
The vegetarian varieties like lauki kofta, shahi aloo kofta, and malai kofta are popular in India, as is kofta made of minced goat meat.
The meat is often mixed with other ingredients such as rice, Bulgur, vegetables, or eggs to form a smooth paste.
Koftas are sometimes made with fish or vegetables rather than meat, especially in India.
They can be grilled, fried, steamed, poached, baked or marinated, and may be served with a rich spicy sauce.
Variations occur in North Africa, the Mediterranean, Central Europe, and South Asia.
According to a 2005 study done by a private food company, there were 291 different kinds of kofta in Turkey alone, where it is very popular.
In Arab countries, kofta is usually shaped into cigar-shaped cylinders.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
