A popular specialty in Turkish cuisine, cig kofte is a dish that is a specialty of the Şanlıurfa region of Turkey. The dish is mainly served as an appetizer or meze before main courses. While it is traditionally made with raw beef or lamb meat, in our present-day it is enjoyed in its vegetarian version! The preparation consists of extra fine bulgur being kneaded with chopped onions and water until it gets a soft enough texture. Afterward, special spices, green onion, fresh mint, parsley, and lemon are added to the mixture. The dish is then served with fresh lettuce leaves ready for everyone’s enjoyment.
