Instructions
  1. In small pan over very low heat, add the black peppercorns, cumin, allspice, coriander, and red pepper flake. Gently toast for 2-3 minutes to wake up the spices.
  2. Combine toasted spices into spice grinder, coffee grinder*, or mortar and pestle and grind**. Add all spices (toasted and not) into the ground meat and gently combine. Using an ice cream scoop or 1/3 cup measuring spoon, make small balls of the meat.
  3. Cook your kofta on the grill/in a saute pan for ~8-10 minutes or in a 350 deg F oven (takes 15-18 minutes) or until the internal temperature is 165 deg F.
Recipe Notes

*If you use a coffee grinder, run a 1/2 slice of bread in it before and after grinding, or else your morning joe will taste, spicy.
**If you don’t have any of those, put the spices into a resealable plastic bag and use a rolling pin or wine bottle to grind the spices. It may take a minute, but it’ll be worth it.
