Beef Stuffed Potato Pate
(Icli Patates Koftesi)
Pate (Kofte) Ingredients:
2 medium white potatoes, boiled, peeled and grated
1 or 2 slices insides of Turkish bread, crumbled
1 egg white
1/2 tsp salt
1 pinch black pepper
3-4 tbsp ground beef
8-10 slice of onion
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1/2 cup flour
1 egg yolk + 1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup sunflower oil
First, cook the ground beef, onion, salt and pepper in a small pan. Then add the parsley, stir. Let it cool down.
Place all the pate ingredients in a bowl. Mix them with your hands. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Pour the oil into a large frying pan and heat it up. Meanwhile, take a ball of the potato mixture, make a hole and stuff a little bit filling inside, close. Give it a long shape as seen in the picture. First roll it in the flour, soak in the egg mixture, then roll it into the bread crumbs. Repeat it for the remaining potato mixture and fry all the pates until golden brown. Place them on the paper towel to soak up the extra oil.
