Baked lamb and yogurt, Tavë Kosi, is an Albanian recipe.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

For yogurt sauce
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick or 50 g) butter
  • 2 lb (900 g) yogurt
  • 5 eggs
  • salt, pepper

Procedure[edit | edit source]

Cut meat in 4 serving pieces, sprinkle each piece with salt and pepper, and bake in a moderately-heated oven with half the butter, basting the meat with its gravy now and then. When meat is half-baked, add rice. Remove the baking pan from the oven and leave it aside while you prepare the yogurt sauce.

Sauté flour in butter until mixed thoroughly. Mix yogurt with salt, pepper and eggs until a uniform mixture is obtained, and finally stir in the flour-butter mix. Put the sauce mixture in the baking pan; stir it with the meat pieces and bake at 375°F (190°C) for about 45 minutes. Serve hot.

Serves 4.
