Many dishes in Afghan cooking require the layering of sauces and dairy-based dressings. This kofta sauce, typically made using lamb, is a flavour-rich topping for dumplings such as mantu and ashak, or it can be stirred through aush soup. Onion and garlic are browned for the base, to which the ground meat is added and fried. Plenty of tomato creates a rich sauce flavoured with fragrant spices.
