Spiced Pork Koftes
Spiced Pork Koftes
  • Skill level: Easy peasy

Koftes are an essential element of Turkish cuisine, and for far less than the cost of a restaurant you can make them at home! The onions and chopped coriander add wonderful bite to the minced pork.


  • 450g (1lb) lean minced pork
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 30ml (2tbsp) fresh chopped coriander
  • 5ml (1tsp) each ground coriander and ground cumin
  • White of 1 small egg
  • Metal skewers


  1. Place the pork mince and spring onions in a food processor. Add the fresh coriander, the ground coriander and cumin and the egg white. Season well and process until blended. (Alternatively, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl with clean hands)
  2. Divide the mixture into 8 and shape on to metal skewers.
  3. Chill for 30 mins then cook under a medium-hot grill for 15-20 mins, turning frequently until the koftes are cooked through.
  4. Brush with a little oil towards the end of the cooking time. Serve with rice, salad and cucumber yogurt and sprinkled with a little paprika.

Apart from the pork, there is not enough spices in the mixture.

Sorry but it is utterly ridiculous to have a Turkish Kofte recipe using PORK mince. As anyone who has even a basic understanding of Turkish cuisine or culture will know, a Turkish kitchen would NEVER include PORK products. Yes, Kofte are essential part of Turkish cuisine, however Pork is definitely not!
