What is Nargisi Kofta:

Nargisi Kofta or Nargisi Kebab is a Mughlai dish. The boiled eggs are encased by the layer of minced meat or chicken mixed with some hot spices and chopped onion and deep fried. This dish is called Nargisi Kofta. You can also use minced beef for this dish but I prefer Lamb which will get a awesome taste with this mixture.

How to prepare Nargisi Kofta:

  1. Start by putting Eggs in a pan of water and let it boil. Now boil the eggs for exact 6 minutes.
  2. When the eggs are boiling. grind the meat in a mixer or a food processor for 20-30 seconds while the meat is minced well then add the remaining ingredients ( Gram flour, chopped onion, green chillis, cumin powder, chilli powder and salt) and grind to a smooth paste or smooth dough.
  3. In meantime, after 6 minute remove the eggs from the pan and plunge them into cold water. This stops the yolk from discoloring. When the eggs are cooled crack the shells and peel it to take the boiled eggs out.
  4. Now make the dough and cut it into 4 pieces. First wet your hands in water and take a piece of dough and press it into a pattie then take one of your eggs put it in the middle of the pattie and work the dough around the egg and there we find a nice smooth ball. Now do the same for the other three eggs.

  7. Perfect yummy Nargisi Kofta is now ready to eat.
