Tabrizi Meat Balls
The word Kufteh, which literally means pounded in
Persian, refers to any type of ground meat that has been formed into
a meatball. Iranians make a variety of meatballs and use them in
soups, khoreshes, and as a basis for quick meals.
It is said that the best Kufteh is made in Azarbaijan, and
that a Tabrizi housewife really has the secret of the best-flavored
Kufteh. Kufteh Tabrizi is the most famous variety of
Kufteh prepared in Iran. Try it either when in Tabriz or
anywhere else in Iran.
