Here is a way of using the Kofta recipe that I showed you in the previous post. It’s Kofta with Tomato and Potato. Similar to a meatloaf but in my opinion more flavorful.
In this recipe, the kofta mix is spread in an oven dish then topped with tomatoes and potatoes, and baked to perfection.
I like to eat this Kofta with Tomato and Potato with pitta bread. But I know some people like to eat it with white rice. So you can choose which ever you prefer.
You will need:
- 2 large potatoes, quartered then sliced thinly
- 2 large tomatoes, quartered and sliced
- juice of one lemon
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vegtable oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
Begin by spreading the kofta in a 10- inch pan.
Make indentations in the kofta like in the photo. This will make it easier to serve as the meat will shrink as it bakes.
In a bowl mix the potatoes and tomatoes and season them with all-spice, salt and pepper. Add the lemon and 1/2 cup water and mix everything well.
Pour the potato and tomato mixture on top of the kofta, then drizzle the oil on top.
Cover it well with aluminum foil and bake on medium heat for 1 hour, or until the potatoes are done (u can test to see if its done using a fork). Remove the aluminium foil and with the broiler on, bake until the potatoes are golden.
Serve it with pitta bread or white rice, which ever you like and prefer.

Happy cooking, and as we say in Arabic “Sahha Wi Afia”
