Leyla Icli Kofte, also known as “Stuffed Meatballs,” is a traditional Turkish dish made with a combination of bulgur wheat and ground meat, typically lamb or beef. The bulgur wheat and meat are kneaded together to form a dough-like mixture, which is then shaped into small balls and filled with a savory mixture of seasoned ground meat, onions, and sometimes pine nuts or raisins.
The stuffed meatballs are typically boiled in water or broth and then served with a sauce made of melted butter and paprika, along with a side of yogurt or salad. This dish is often served as an appetizer or as part of a larger spread of Turkish meze dishes. It is a popular and flavorful dish that is enjoyed by many people both in Turkey and around the world.
