Turkey Koftas


These Turkey Koftas are delightful. So simple to make and are delicious hot or cold.

Make extra and you have a scrumptious supper and a fabulous packed lunch the following day.

I served these as part of a sharing supper for friends with Herby Houmous, Chunky Tzatziki, Homemade Flatbreads and Tomato and Red Onion Salad.  I shall share recipes for the sides on Wednesday.
