Place the minced meat in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients for the kofte. Knead well. Divide the mincemeat into eighths and knead into oval balls with your hands. Thread them on a skewer and let them set in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Let the rice simmer for about 10 minutes until the liquid has been absorbed. The rice doesn’t have to be completely dry, but it should still be a bit creamy. Heat a frying pan and fry the kofta skewers until nicely browned for about 10 minutes. Serve the rice with the kofta. Also delicious with a Greek salad.
