Favorite food of all people and all generations here. Including me who have original Indonesia taste :)
As Kebab, Köfte have some variation and sometimes the name was taken from the town where it originated from. For example Adana Köfte, Izmir Köfte,etc. This time I try to make Izmir Köfte ... Want to try as well in your kitchen?
