Kofta Kebabs are a delicious combination of meat and warm spices that make a great addition to your regular meal rotation. They have a long list of spices, but if you decide you enjoy these flavors, you can streamline the process by premixing a larger quantity of equal parts nutmeg, sumac, allspice, and cardamom and adding 4 teaspoons of the spice combination to the meat when you decide to have this for dinner. This entree pairs very well with our Tzatziki Sauce!
