How to make Middle-Easteen Meat Balls, Kofta in Tomato sauce | طريقة عمل كفتة بالبندور

Kofta in Tomato | Kafta | كفتة بالبندورة.

Middle-Eastern Meat balls or what is known to the Arabs as the Tomato Kofta also known as Kafta Kebab with tomato sauce  كفتة بالبندورة, كفتة بلطماطم

Kebab is a very popular Middle Eastern dish, but did you ever hear of Kufta? Kufta stands for Meat balls in Arabic. A very general dish. It is served almost everywhere around the world only with the different types of flavoring depending on the food culture of the country. Beef with curry sauce, Beef with coconut sauce or Orange sauce, Meat Balls, Beef stew, Kebab, Souvlaki….

In the Middle East, Meat balls are popular, but we know them as Kufta or in other Arabian accents Kefta, Kafta, or Kofta. They are made very similar to how the Kebab are made, only cooked a little different and garnished with different flavors. You can have a Middle Eastern Kufta with tomato sauce, tahini sauce, or pomegranate molasses.

Today, I will be sharing with you the very original common “Kefta bil bandoura” which stands for Kofta in Tomato sauce. Some people like to add potatoes and red pepper, some people like to add eggplants and onions. But today, my talented mother and favorite chef in the world decided to only concentrate it with fresh tomatoes.

Enjoy the recipe, and have pita bread handy for this dish can be eaten by fork or with bread.
