Ground Turkey Kofta

posted in: Recipes 0

I remember the first time I used coriander, I thought it was so fragrant, almost with a hint of citrus. After eating the dish I had a very profound revelation, “wow, this tastes a little like cilantro.” My family, still to this day, makes sure that I know coriander is the seed which grows cilantro. You make one little mistake….

  • 2 pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Allspice
  • ½ teaspoon Ground ginger
  • ½ Oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon Paprika


  • Mix all the spices into a large bowl, then add your meat.
  • Traditionally, Kofta is made with lamb, but I use ground turkey for a lot of my dishes.
  • Once combined, form into a kabob that looks kind of like a corn dogs. The reason I like using onion and garlic powder instead of the more traditional grated onion/garlic, is that it's easier to form the meat on the skewer (Oh, and I love using metal skewers.) You can purchase something similar through Walmart (Metal BBQ Skewer Set)
  • Put the kabobs on your grill over medium high heat. Turn a couple times during cooking and remove after 10 minutes.
  • Ok, for serving, this is a total Midwest thing but ranch goes on everything here, and the Kofta goes great with ranch as a dipping sauce. Or you can try it with my tzatziki sauce.
