And I hope my post meets you in good, happy, and healthy condition. Please keep your self and families safe in this pandemic situation around the globe. Be patient and be safe 💟

First, Ramadhan Kareem to all my Muslim friends around the world. May the spirit of Ramadhan stay in our hearts and illuminate our souls from within.
We are happy can meet Ramadan again this year, but a little sad since this Ramadan we are in an unfortunate situation that makes us stay at home to isolate ourselves from the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Generally, we would have wonderful iftar together with families and friends. We invite each other to have iftar dinner where beautiful and happy moments being shared.
Iftar, also known as fatoor, is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. They break their fast at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer.
I hope this condition will end up soon and we can have a peaceful life back.

ırında Beğendili Köfte / Turkish Meatball Kofta with Cheesy Ember-Roasted Aubergine | Çitra's Home Diary

Today I will share our favorite, it calls Beğendili Köfte. Köfte is a traditional Turkish meatball (kofta) made from mincemeat mix with "baharat" or spices. The meat is used commonly beef or lamb or mixes both of them. Köfte is very popular here and everybody's favorite.
Beğendili from the word beğendil, it's an ember-roasted aubergine, finely minced then mix in a creamy cheesy sauce similar to the bechamel sauce. This dish it's not only widely popular as a restaurant meal but also homemade versions are rich and served at home. 
Many variations can be served with this beğendil sauce such as roasted chicken or meat. You can check my previous "Hünkar Beğendi" recipe for the variations.
But today I will serve this "beğendil" with Turkish köfte a little bit different from the restaurant-style. I roasted my beğendili köfte before serving with cheese over the dish.

The main reason I roasted before serve because I usually made all things ahead and keep in the refrigerator. Whenever I am ready to serve I just simply place and arrange everything, spread some cheese then put it into preheated oven a few minutes... and voallaa.. dish ready!
So this dish is perfectly made for iftar time in this Ramadan.

Fırında Beğendili Köfte / Turkish Meatball Kofta with Cheesy Ember-Roasted Aubergine
By: Çitra's Home Diary

Ingredients
For meatball Kofta:
🍽 500 gr minced lamb or beef or mix both
🍽 1 tsp baking soda
🍽 ¼ cup of water
🍽 100 gr stale bread (white part only), shredded to make it crumb
🍽 1 medium onion, finely shredded and  drain the water
🍽 1 tsp black pepper powder
🍽 1½ tsp salt or to taste
🍽 ¼ tsp cumin powder

For "beğendil" sauce:
🍽 300 gr aubergine (about 3-4 medium) pierced all over
🍽 2 Tbsp butter
🍽 2 Tbsp flour
🍽 1½ cup of milk
🍽 1 cup of shredded "kaşar peynir" or cheddar cheese
🍽 pinch of salt and black pepper powder
🍽 ½ tsp fresh grated nutmeg

For topping:
🍽 some shredded cheddar cheese or mozzarella
🍽 butter, melted
🍽 pinch of smoked paprika
🍽 banana chili pepper, ember-roasted

1. Make köfte meatball
Place ground meat in a bowl. Stir baking soda in ¼ cup of water until dissolved, you may have some baking soda undissolved but it's okay. Mix the solution with ground meat and start to knead until incorporated and the texture becomes a bit tight.
Mix in bread crumb and knead again to combine well. Knead in onion, black pepper, and others and continue to knead until combine. Set aside n fridge until you are ready to grill/ roast.

2. Ember-roast the aubergines
Pierced aubergines all over then cook directly onto fire/stove, use medium heat. Turn over once a while until you get very soft and cooked trough the aubergines. Set aside to slightly cool. Peel off the skin carefully, you don't want to waste too much aubergines meat.
After that chop the aubergines and set aside.

3. Make beğendil
Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit, but don't let it brown — about 3 minutes. Add the milk, continuing to stir as the sauce thickens. Bring it to a boil. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg, lower the heat, and cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir in grated Cheddar cheese, cook until its melted. Last stir in chopped ember-roasted aubergine, mix, and heat off.

ASSEMBLE THE DISH

Heat grilling pan over medium heat, take some meatball mixture, and shape it like small patty or log (like mine), slightly wet your palm with oil when shaping your köfte. Cook over grilling pan 4-5 minutes each side. Set aside.

Preheated oven at 200℃. Take a heat-proof plate and spoon some beğendil sauce onto it. Add some köfte meatball and grated cheese over it. Then place into the oven and cook just until cheese is melting and bubbling.

Melt butter and smoked paprika, flush over the dish before serving. Serve with ember-roasted banana pepper and salad.

Enjoy.

BAHASA INDONESIA


السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ


Merhaba dari Türki semuanya 👋

Semoga ketemu dalam kondisi sehat dan bersykur ya 😊
Tetap sabar dalam situasi pandemik yang belum mereda.. entah sampai kapan. Mudah-mudahan Allah yang Maha penyayang segera mengangkat penyakit ini dari seluruh muka bumi. Ada banyak hikmah nantinya setelah wabah covid19 nanti ya, Inshaallah.
Makin menjaga kebersihan, makin mencintai keluarga, makin mencintai masjid (yang kosong akibat pandemi ini 😭), makin bersukur dan menjaga kesehatan tubuh kita masing-masing. Amin.

Pada kesempatan ini juga saya ingin ucapkan Selamat menjalankan ibadah puasa di Bulan Ramadan. Semoga lancar dan diberi kemudahan dalam menjalan ibadah yang spesial ini. Amin.

Kali ini saya akan bagi salah satu menu iftar untuk keluarga saya, namanya Fırında Beğendili Köfte atau kofte dengan saus putih dari terong yang dibakar. Menu ini biasa disajikan di restoran-restoran yang menyajikan menu köfte atau meatball khas Turki. 
Beğendili berasal dari kata "beğendil" yaitu terong yang dibakar langsung diatas bara api lalu dagingnya dicampur dengan saus putih semacam saus besamel (bechamel). Beğendil ini sudah ada sejak lama, yaitu sejak masa kesultanan Ustmaniyah. Salah satu masakan peninggalan kerajaan Ottoman yang menggunakan beğendil ini adalah Hünkar beğendi.

Masakan ini terlihat rumit dan memakan waktu, tapi sebenarnya bisa menjadi alternatif bagi saya untuk bisa menyajikan masakan super cepat untuk iftar. Karena semua bisa kita persiapkan/ buat terlebih dahulu lalu bisa disimpan dalam lemari es. Kita tinggal menaruh semuanya diatas pinggan tahan panas lalu taburi dengan keju dan panggang di oven 4-5 menit saja dan makanan sudah siap.
Jadi type make ahead.

Bagi yang tidak terbiasa dengan makanan Turki, memang makanan ini akan terasa aneh, tapi ini asli enak banget dengan rasa keju yang kaya disanding dengan meatball khas yang lezat.
Yuukk yang pengen berwisata kuliner dengan masakan khas Turki, cobain resep saya ini yah.

Oleh: Çitra's Home Diary

Bahan

Untuk meatball/ köfte:
🍽 500 gr daging domba atau sapi cincang atau campuran keduanya
🍽 1 sdt soda kue
🍽 ¼ gelas (125 ml) air 
🍽 100 gr roti  bagian putih saja), parut menjadi remahan
🍽 1 bawang bombay sedang, parut halus dan tiriskan airnya
🍽 1 sdt bubuk lada hitam
🍽 1 ½ sdt garam atau secukupnya
🍽 ¼ sdt bubuk cumin

Untuk saus "beğendil":
🍽 300 gr terong ungu besar (sekitar 3-4)
🍽 2 sendok makan mentega
🍽 2 sendok makan tepung
🍽 1 ½ gelas susu
🍽 1 gelas perutan keju cheddar, disini saya gunakan "kaşar peynir" 
🍽 sejumput garam dan bubuk lada hitam
🍽 ½ sdt pala parut segar

Untuk topping:
🍽 parutan keju cheddar atau mozzarella
🍽 mentega
🍽 sejumput bubuk smoke paprika
🍽 Cabe paprika hijau panjang, bakar diatas api

1. Cara membuat köfte
Taruh daging giling dalam mangkuk. Aduk baking soda dalam ¼ gelas air sampai larut, mungkin tidak semua BS larut,tetapi tidak apa-apa. Campurkan larutan baking soda dengan daging giling dan mulai uleni sampai rata dan tekstur daging berubah agak kenyal.
Campurkan remahan roti dan uleni lagi agar tercampur rata. masukkan parutan bawang bombay, lada hitam, dan lainnya dan terus diremas-remas sampai tercampur. Sisihkan dan simpan di kulkas sampai siap dipanggang.

2. Cara membakar terong
Tusuk-tusuk terong  kemudian bakar langsung diatas api / kompor, gunakan api sedang. Balik sesekali sampai terong menjadi sangat empuk dan matang. Sisihkan hingga agak dingin. Kupas kulitnya dengan hati-hati jangan sampai daging terongnya ikut terbuang.
Setelah itu potong-potong terong dan sisihkan.

3. Buat saus beğendil
Lelehkan mentega dalam wajan, masukkan tepung dan aduk rata - sekitar 3 menit. Tambahkan susu, terus aduk hingga saus mengental. Didihkan. Tambahkan garam,pala dan merica, kecilkan api, dan masak, aduk selama 2 hingga 3 menit lagi. Aduk keju Cheddar parut, masak sampai meleleh. Terakhir aduk terong cincang, aduk rata dan angkat dari api.

PENYELESAİAN

Ambil adonan köfte/ meatball. Bentuk bulat lonjong atau bulat pipih. Panggang diatas wajan gril hingga matang. Sisihkan.
