A classic of many cuisines and every day meals, kotlieti are simply ground meat patties, as they are called in Russian. This is my grandma's recipe and it yields light and airy patties thanks to the secret ingredients that she adds - zucchini and soda water! This is one of the dishes we have on regular basis and each time we gobble them up as quickly as possible!
1lb ground turkey
1 medium onion
½ medium zucchini
3-4 garlic teeth
2 tbsp soda water
2-3 tbsp bread crumbs
1. Place onion, zucchini and garlic in food processor to achieve an even mash.
2. Mix meat with the mash, add eggs, water, and bread crumbs
3. Mix until all the water is absorbed, wet hands and form oval shaped patties about 2" in length and fry on medium-high heat in oil until brown.
