Moroccan chicken kofta

One of the inspired recipe from my middle eastern experience. Very often I make it at at home.  It is a simple recipe and has an easy cooking methods. You can replace the chicken with lamb also. I have mixed breast and leg meat to get a juicy kofta.


  • Chicken Breast bone less – 250 gm
  • Chicken leg bone less – 250 gm
  • Peeled Garlic – 1/8 cup
  • Roasted cumin powder – 1 tbsp
  • Crushed Black pepper – 2 tea spoon
  • Dry red chili flakes – 2 tsp
  • Roughly cut Parsley – hand full
  • Salt to taste
  • Egg 1 no
  • Olive oil for grilling


  • Mix all the ingredients with chicken except egg
  • Use a meat mincer or processor to mince or blend the meat
  • Now beat the egg and mix well with the minced meat and leave it in the refrigerator for the meat to cool down
  • Once the meat is chilled, make them into oval patties that are about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick (try to keep them all equal in size).
  • Heat the grill pan or non stick pan in a medium heat. Grease then with olive oil.
  • Once the pan is hot Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is fully cooked
