First Attempt at Making Beef Kefta Kebabs

zackly | Feb 29, 202005:28 AM     1

I have some ground beef I want to turn into beef kefta (or is it kofta?) kebabs. Perusing recipes online I see many different styles many using spices one would expect to find in a Western cook's cabinet and others that use Middle Eastern spices or spice blends. I have many spice blends including this Seven Spice Blend linked below. Also, I have fresh cilantro but only dried parsley. Should I use this spice blend or another or just use individual spices. any advice or recipes would be appreciated, thanks!
One more question: regarding mint, many Middle Eastern recipes include fresh mint. I usually only have this during the summer growing season. Is there an acceptable substitution for fresh mint that I can buy? Dried? Frozen? Mint oil?
