Help with Kafta

Charlie Tokyo | Dec 25, 2011 04:42 PM

Hi. Thanks in advance. I fried Kafta tonight, and it was a disaster. Smoke everywhere, etc... The 2 things I need help with is first, does the ground meat have to put through a food processor? Both May S. Bsisu's The Arab Table and Christiane Dabdoub Nasser's Classic Palestinian Cookery specify adding the meat to a food processor, but I do not own one. Secondly, both texts instruct to heat the oil on high. I have an electric range, and set it at 8. Should I use a lower setting next time? I think it may have been to high, but I did not want to under cook the meat (instructions say 5 minutes per side).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
