"Simple, but very tasty! One of my favorite Turkish foods. Literally, kadin buddu means 'ladies' thighs.' Coated in egg and then fried, Turkish koftas come in all shapes, sizes, and degrees of spiciness. You can do a lot with them. Serve with breads, rice, sauces, gravies, salads, and onion rings, or serve them as-is for an appetizer or snack."

  1. Combine ground lamb, cooked rice, salt, garam masala, and ground black pepper in a bowl. Transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse until combined, 1 to 2 times. Stir dill into the mixture.
  2. Shape mixture into 10 meatballs about 2 inches in diameter.
  3. Beat egg in a small bowl. Pour flour onto a shallow dish. Dip meatballs in the beaten egg; dredge in flour.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet. Cook meatballs until golden on all sides, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can substitute mutton or beef for the lamb.
  • You can use fresh cilantro in place of dill.
  • These meatballs are traditionally fried, but they can also be grilled.
