Kofta in matisha oelbid


  • 500g premium beef mince

  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes

  • 1 medium onion finely diced

  • 4 free range eggs

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • Handful chopped fresh coriander and parsley

  • 2 Cloves garlic crushed then finely chopped

  • 2 tsp Moroccan red spice mix (available in our store)

  • 1/2 tsp Ras el hanout spice mix (available in our store)

  • Salt to taste


  1. Sauté the onions in olive oil in a shallow saucepan with lid or a tagine dish on medium high heat until clear. Add 1 tsp of red spice, garlic and herbs, cook for a few minutes, careful not to burn them (add a little water if you need to).

  2. Add the can of chopped tomatoes and cook over a medium low heat for 20 minutes adding a little water from time to time as needed (so it doesn't burn and is not too runny).

  3. Meanwhile prepare the kofta: combine remaining red spice and ras el hanout spices to the mince (add cayenne pepper or chilli if you like it hot spicy) and mix well. Shape into balls and add to the tomato sauce.

  4. Cook on a medium heat for a further 15minutes or until cooked through (depending on the size of your meatballs)

  5. Crack 4 eggs on top and cover til cooked.

  6. Add chopped herbs to garnish. Serve with flat bread or baguette. Enjoy!
