About Beef and Rice Croquettes:

This is an interesting food because of it’s name in Turkish. In Turksh we name it kadınbudu köfte. There’s no problem with köfte. As some of you knows köfte means meatballs. But what about kadınbudu? Actually there are two words: kadın and budu. The first word, kadın, means ‘woman’ and the second word, budu means ‘her buttocks’. After this little elucidating, we can continue to our recipe :)
