Your red lentil koefte look amazing. Lentils are not always so photogenic. But your pic makes me want to reach into my screen and grab one, or several!

Johanna have you heard about the eating eurovision challenge that a lot of London food bloggers undertook. Eating from every country in the contest within the M25 lots of fun for Euro addicts!

Jeanne

LOL - we should watch together next year! I was home watching and comparing notes via text message with my brother in South Africa. Most surreal moment: German represented by a Mexican bloze in sequinned trousers and accompanied by Dita vo Teese. As German as, umm, tacos al pastor.

Helen

These look wonderful Johanna. Are they solid enough to bake - I am wondering if they would make a good burger base?

Chef Keem

Servus, Johanna - I haven't been around for a while (busy with my own new website), and it's a shame. Your site always makes for a super-delicious read. Your archives could keep me interested for weeks..lol. Speaking of archives - I found an old email exchange between the two of us where you asked me for a 'gentle reminder' to write a post about "Fleischsalad". Ok, then... :)

I'll add your feed to my new site so I'll have your posts "in my face" all the time. Then, I'm sure, I can't resist to stop by more often. All the best, -Chef Keem (Achim)

I can't find bulgar wheat anywhere here - can I substitute couscous or rice in this recipe do you think? ALso having problems finding the harissa but I really want to try these! I'm sure I could find them in a specialist shop in Cape Town but right now I'm relying on our small town supermarkets!

johanna


my fear with the couscous and rice would be that they soak up too much liquid... but it's worth a try and you can always adjust.as for the harissa, i guess you could just use some chillies and stew them for a while with a bit of vinegar and any spices you like... it doesn't have to be harissa, but it gives them a nice little kick!

Hi Johanna, I just came across your blog while googling for impressive finger food and love the look of these koefte, especially nice to see a non-deep fried snack! Can you give me an idea of how many this will make? Plus ... could this be made a day ahead?

hi annie,
I honestly don't remember how many this makes - the original recipe says "serves 4-6" but that's hardly helpful when serving as fingerfood. It'll obviously depend on how little or big you roll the koefte, but i would estimate that you could get at least 40 out of this.
if preparing ahead (definitely possible), store in an airtight container in the fridge, let come to room temperature before rolling. the mass might have gone a bit dry, i would suggest "reviving" it with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice and water in the same proportions as in the recipe.
I hope this helps!

Hello Turkish name of this food is "MERCİMEK KÖFTESİ" :)Köfte is a general name of all kind of "ball" foods...Like meatballs(KÖFTE),lentil balls(MERCİMEK KÖFTESİ),potato balls(PATATES KÖFTESİ)...
You don't need to add mint and you must put tomato paste instead of tomato purée...This KÖFTE must be a little bit more dry!It must look just like the my pic on my blog.
