Koofteh (Persian meatballs)

Koofteh, also spelled Kufteh, refers to a genre of Persian food made from a mixture of ground meat, rice, fresh herbs, and spices, which is formed into the shape of a ball, and is usually cooked in and served with its (yummy) broth.

A typical koofteh is the size of an orange or maybe a grapefruit, but depending on its type, it can be as small as a walnut or in the case of the old-school version of koofteh Tabrizi it could be as big as a bowling ball. That is not a typo!
