In the meantime, mix together all lamb köfte ingredients (except olive oil). Form oblong balls, 1 to 1½ inches long.

Step 3

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook until browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

To finish the bulgar, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add bulgur, ginger, currants, salt, pepper, and the rest of the turmeric. Turn up the heat to medium-high and sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes. Serve bulgur and cauliflower with the lamb köfte.
