“Hi Robyn,
I love looking at the Armenian Kitchen blog and find it very educational for a novice cook like me. My life has always revolved around food, family get togethers and fun.

I have been looking for a recipe that I believe is Anjartsi in origin. The pinch of this/handful of that mentality has made it impossible for me to replicate this. It is a lentil kufte (unlike the ones you have on your blog). It is similar to “meechegov kufte” (oval shaped stuffed meat kufte) but is made with potatoes. I believe the filling is also potatoes and onions but the difference between this and the ones on your blog is that it is also deep fried just like regular kufte.

Have you ever had this?
Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey I think I just saw a recipe for this in my mom's cookbook. Let me see if I can track it down. Carousel in Glendale makes it for sure. Totally yummy and you don't miss the meat at all. If anything, it is even better.
