BACKGROUND INFO ABOUT THE DISH

In Turkey, these are called ‘mercimek koftesi’ meaning: lentil meatballs. Although these meatballs are made with bulgur and red lentils, I don’t know why their names focuses only on lentils. The meatballs are almost uncooked and served cold as an appetizer.

They are traditionally served in finger shape, also we never serve them on their own. Lettuce leaves and pickles are staple foods when you serve it. You can enrich your table with herbs and salads depending on your taste.
