Hasan Pasha Kofte
For Today, I am sharing a recipe that is so popular in Turkey , and consider one of my family favourites! "Hasan Pasha Kofte" ( Hasan Paşa Köftesi) , a wonderful, comforting dish that also can be beautifully served in family gatherers.
Meatballs topped with the potato puree that look mouthwatering! , an impressive dish for sharing with friends :)
I chose to add some fresh basil leaves to the red tomato sauce, as I thought it would enhance the flavor even more ...
Will leave you now with full recipe,enjoy!
