Some meatballs are made with only fatty ground beef with a very simple recipe. Most hamburger patties that we consume with hamburgers around the world can be called kasap köfte in Turkish. In English kasap köfte means butcher's meatball. In Turkish cuisine, chopped parsley and spices are often added to meatballs at homes or in artisan meatball restaurants. In Turkish kitchen, semolina is added to some meatballs such as Tekirdağ köfte (Tekirdağ meatballs), while some meatballs such as Akçaabat köfte (Akçaabat meatballs) are made by adding garlic. The secret of Tire köfte (Tire meatballs) is to use plenty of butter in its production. It would not be wrong to talk about Çiğköfte (raw meatball), which is a separate meatball recipe among Turkish dishes, as well as cooked meatball recipes. However, as the name suggests, this meatball is raw. This meatball, which is made by hand kneading for a long time with hot peppers called isot pepper which is unique to Urfa, is one of the most preferred meatball dishes of Anatolian cuisine.  

Meatballs are not only made with meat in Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. Meatball recipes which are made with vegetables have always helped vegetarian or vegan people. Etsiz çiğköfte (meatless raw meatball) is also frequently consumed as a street food in Turkey. Bulgur is used instead of meat in meatless raw meatballs. Among Turkish dishes, the dish we call mücver is a kind of zucchini meatball. It is made by frying grated zucchini in hot oil after giving it the consistency of meatballs. In addition, bulgur meatballs called Besmec are a delicious meatball recipe unique to Anatolia. Falafel meatballs are made around the world with boiled chickpeas.

Tips For Making Cauliflower Patties

Before cooking cauliflower, you should definitely buy fresh cauliflower. You can distinguish fresh cauliflower from stale cauliflower by the spots on it. If there are spots on the cauliflower, it indicates that it has been waiting. Fresh cauliflower has a very white color.

Cleanliness is very important. After separating the cauliflower branches without damaging the branches, wash them well under water.

If you boil the cauliflower in boiling water too much, it will disintegrate when you put it in the hot oil. For these reasons, be careful not to boil it too much.

You should wait for the boiled cauliflower to cool. However, after cooling, you should dip the meatballs in sauce and cook them in oil.

You can adjust the spices, hotness and salt ratio according to your desire.

If the cauliflower branches break when you throw them into the hot oil, you can pour the meatball mixture that you have prepared on the broken branch and make it stand in one piece.

You can serve your fried cauliflower with sliced lemon and garlic yogurt or plain yogurt.

If you put your leftover cauliflower in the refrigerator, you can consume it the next day.
