500 grams of raw ground mutton (you may substitute raw grass-fed beef tenderloin)
300 grams quinoa or shredded daikon, washed, drained
1 medium size onion, grated
1-2 garlic cloves, grated
3 tbsp red pepper paste
1 tsp cumin
Crushed pepper, adjust the amount as you wish
1 tsp salt
1 pinch black pepper
1 bunch of parsley, washed, drained, finely chopped, divided
Romaine salad, washed, drained
2 fresh green onions, finely chopped
Place raw mutton, quinoa (or shredded daikon), onion, garlic, red pepper paste, cumin, crushed pepper, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Knead the ingredients together for about 45 minutes. Add half of the parsley and knead 5 more minutes. Take a small piece, roll it into a cylinder shape, squeeze and leave finger marks on it as seen in the picture.
Place the green salad leaves on a serving dish. Arrange the Cig Kofte onto the salad. Sprinkle the rest of the parsley and chopped green onions on top. Serve with lemon wedges.
