Oh Sofram …..

One of the things that bummed Krish about our pregnancy with Shlok was that I had no cravings.. None whatsoever !! He was so sad.. he had no stories to share at work about him running over to Taco Bell at 3 AM to get me a burrito.. Well all that changed till we discovered Sofram.. Oh Sofram .. How I miss thee .. Delightful Turkish cuisine served by a family of very down to earth people… You could taste the love and the passion in their food. It was like sitting in some one’s house and eating the most delightful donna kabobs and homemade baklava.

I have tried to re-create the magic of Sofram today for all of you to share….

To Serve 2-3

1 Pound of ground chicken (Traditionally lamb meat is used but we’re trying to eat a little lighter these days)
1/2 Red onion chopped
1 Tsp Ginger paste
1 Tsp Garlic paste
2-3 Tbsp chopped Cilantro

Salt, pepper, red chili powder, all spice to taste

Mix all together. The mixture will be sticky. You can use eggs/ breadcrumbs to “bind” the mixture but I try not to add anything extra to just keep the integrity of the core ingredients.

Make long kabobs like a hotdog and insert a skewer in each.

Grill on a medium heat for about 4-5 minutes on each side.

Serve with saffron rice, parsley yogurt dip and a grilled tomato..

Enjoy !
