Grilled Mushroom Beef Kofta

Grilled Mushroom & Beef Kofta |

Quick grilled meatballs with a killer sauce and the added nutrition of mushrooms – which also lowers the fat.




  1. Melt butter in a large saute pan, add mushrooms and saute about 6 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Cool thoroughly (for a shortcut, cool in the freezer for a few minutes.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine mint, cumin, salt, pepper, beef and cooled mushrooms. Use your hands to mix gently; shape into 12 oblong patties and thread 3 onto metal skewers. (Optional: Don’t use skewers.)
  3. 3. Heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 3 skewers to pan; cook 10 minutes or until done, turning occasionally to brown on all sides.
  4. 4. While kofta cooks, prepare sauce. Combine 1/2 cup yogurt and remaining ingredients. Serve sauce with kofta.
