İçli köfte is a traditional Turkish appetizer prepared from meat and bulgur, believed to originate from Ottoman Cuisine. İçli köfte, translated as "Stuffed Meatballs" from Turkish, represents a bulgur egg-shaped shell with a filling made from lean ground beef, finely chopped onion, crumbled walnuts, cayenne pepper and spices. The meatballs are traditionally fried but some Istanbul restaurants also serve a boiled version of İçli köfte. The exterior bulgur crust helps meatball get its delicate flavour and rich taste. İçli köfte is generally served with crushed red pepper, dried mint, lemon slices or sumac.
